University of Texas CDH Reunion

CDHi President, Dawn Ireland, visit the University of Texas


It was so wonderful to visit the University of Texas in Houston this spring, meet the staff and some of the families that they serve. As the powerhouse behind the CDH Study Group, CDHi (and CHERUBS) has worked with them for over 20 years and we are extremely excited to continue our research and our goal to save more of these children through collaboration with all CDH centers, charities and families.

A large part of my new job at CDHi is visiting these hospitals and working with them directly to raise the standard of care for these kids. As I travel, I hope to meet many of you.
