Dr. Weeks' research interests are in the application of existing and emerging non-invasive imaging modalities to the management of patients with congenital heart disease and investigating outcomes in patients undergoing surgical intervention for congenital heart disease. Her other research interests include examining the effects of prenatal counseling on families with children affected by congenital heart disease and quality improvement activities related to improved interstage outcomes for high risk CHD patients.
