The DCM Foundation website has been reorganized to provide you with faster and easier access to the information you need. This website provides the most current information and resources available to DCM patients and their families.
- The redesigned homepage gives you links to access important information about DCM including Symptoms, Stages, Arrhythmias, Causes, and Genetics – as well as easy links to access upcoming webinars, genetic awareness, and Patient Support resources.
And, be sure to check out the following:
- Find a Cardiomyopathy Specialist – This page explains why finding a heart failure or cardiomyopathy specialist is so important and can make a big difference in treatment recommendations and outcomes. By visiting this page, you will be able to access a special tool to help identify cardiomyopathy specialists within a certain radius of any U.S. address.
- NEW page for Genetic Testing announcing the NEW Genetic Cardiomyopathy Awareness Consortium (GCAC) campaign. This campaign is a collaborative effort of 8 cardiomyopathy patient groups. The goal? To provide awareness and information about the important role genetics plays in cardiomyopathy and the need for genetic testing. Join us to celebrate our official “launch” of this campaign by attending a free webinar, on March 8th from 6:00-7:00 PM ET, entitled “Cardiomyopathy & Genetics – Get the Facts & Save Lives.” Click here to register!
