The Turner Syndrome Council on Cardiology (COC) is an initiative of the Turner Syndrome Foundation dedicated to improving cardiac care outcomes that can save lives. A multi-disciplinary faculty of experts  join to address complex issues and core objectives:

    • To promote the importance of early diagnosis and best possible care of congenital and acquired cardiovascular disease in patients with Turner Syndrome
    • To raise clinical awareness of cardiac care guidelines for Turner Syndrome patients throughout life
    • To emphasize preventive cardiac care in an at risk population
    • To develop a crisis plan to recognize, diagnose and treat an emergent cardiac event in patient with Turner Syndrome

“Congenital or acquired cardiovascular diseases cause increased mortality and morbidity in Turner Syndrome patients. Improving their cardiovascular health through collaboration, research, awareness and advocacy can improve their overall outcomes.”

– Dr. Sheetal Patel, Chairperson, Turner Syndrome Council on Cardiology
