We are pleased to jointly present a three part medical education webinar series with the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation. The series is designed to educate genetic counselors, physicians, and other healthcare providers about the care of families with inherited arrhythmias and implications for genetic testing.

In this second webinar, Michael J. Ackerman, M.D., Ph.D. presents the latest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to long QT syndrome. 

Dr. Ackerman is the Windland Smith Rice Cardiovascular Genomics Research Professor and Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics, and Pharmacology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is a consultant in cardiovascular diseases and pediatric cardiology and serves as Director of Mayo Clinic’s Long QT Syndrome/Genetic Heart Rhythm Clinic and the Windland Smith Rice Sudden Death Genomics Laboratory.

Dr. Ackerman strives to fulfill the two-fold objective of medical education and biomedical research, as stated by Dr. Charles H. Mayo, “to heal the sick and to advance the science.”
