Public Outreach

DICET is committed to educating the public about what they can do to improve their heart health. We offer hands-on CPR training and symposia that are open to patients and guests.

Adult Congenital Heart Symposium
This exciting educational program for physicians and patients focuses on advancements in treatment and management of adult congenital heart disease using lectures and a hands-on simulation lab at the state-of-the-art Houston Methodist Institute for Training, Innovation & Education (MITIESM). 

Save a Life
70 percent of Americans report feeling helpless to act in a cardiac emergency, and 80 percent of cardiac arrests happen in the home. This community initiative is a one-day event to teach hands-only CPR to the public. Each participant receives a free life-saving CPR class and a CPR Anytime kit to take home and train their friends and family.
