Global Health

The Yale Section of Pediatric Cardiology has had a longstanding interest in International Pediatric Health and improving the cardiac condition of children throughout the world. Members of the Section have been regular participants in Cardiovascular Missions in St. Petersburg, Russia and Egypt and the Section and Department have provided their volunteer services to children from Trinidad, Iraq, the Palestinian Authority and the West Indies. The efforts of the Section in the areas of International health have been supported by the extremely generous efforts of the Yale New Haven Heart Center, the Gift of Life Program of the Rotary Club of Hamden, Connecticut and Healing the Children - Northeast.
