How We Help
We partner with families, medical professionals, researchers, and advocates to save lives by raising awareness of SADS conditions, supporting families living with a SADS condition or who have lost a family member, educating the medical community, and advocating for the best care.
From support groups for teens, to physician-led webinars, medical education seminars, live Q&A with experts, an annual conference, and more, we provide programs to address: patient and family support services, physician and health professional education, public awareness, and advocacy & research.
SADS Foundation History
The SADS Foundation was founded by Dr. Michael Vincent on December 12, 1991. As a pioneer in the identification and treatment of Long QT Syndrome, Dr. Vincent convened the top global experts in electrophysiology with community members and supporters to begin the work we continue today.
