Heart Smarts: Create your own heart story
Have you ever been asked about your heart condition but are unsure how to explain? You’re not alone! Join us for “Heart Smarts” as we learn about heart anatomy and function, along with what makes your heart special. Hang out with some of Odayin’s camp cardiologists and nurses who are ready to geek out with all they know about CHD to boost your confidence and help you take charge of conversations about your heart condition.
The January 11th Ticker Talk recording will be posted soon!
“I just wanted to give you guys a huge shout-out! My son, age 9, attended his first Ticker Talk last week and he loved it! It was so exciting hearing him tell us all about the Zoom meeting and describe [what he learned about] his defect to us. It hadn’t dawned on me that we have never explained the specifics of Tetralogy of Fallot with him!! Keep doing what you’re doing – it matters to these precious heart kiddos and families!” – Parent of a first-time Ticker Talk participant
Ticker Talk is a free, online Camp Odayin meet up for heart kids in grades 1-12. Our hour together is a mini camp experience, full of campy-fun and interactive trivia, games, speakers and more. This virtual jamboree is even complete with party favors! All participants receive a package of treats mailed to their house after attending, and one lucky raffle winner receives a $50 Amazon gift card. There’s no cost to participate, but registration is required in order to receive access information to join the party on Zoom. Ticker Talk gatherings are hosted on Zoom every other month from 6:30 to 7:30 PM (Central Time) during the school year.
