LGBTQ+ and the CHD Community Heart to Heart with Anna

What considerations need to be made if patients with congenital heart defects are aligned with the LGBTQ+ community?  Dr. Jake Kleinmahon attended medical school and completed his residency in pediatrics at Tulane University School of Medicine. He continued his training at Children's Colorado, completing fellowships in pediatric cardiology and pediatric heart transplant and advanced heart failure. In 2018 he joined the faculty at Ochsner Hospital for Children in New Orleans where he serves as the medical director of pediatric heart transplant, heart failure, and ventricular assist device programs. He has been active in multiple research efforts and societies to advance heart, lung, and transplant health outcomes, and works to improve healthcare disparities among different CHD racial groups. He was awarded Doctor of the Year by the Colorado Pediatric Congenital Heart Association in 2018. His interests include taking care of children with cardiomyopathies, myocarditis, connective tissue disorders, heart transplant, pulmonary hypertension, and congenital heart disease. He lives in New Orleans with his husband Tom and two children, Isabel (6 y/o) and Connor (3 y/o). Check out Dr. Jake Kleinmahon on Instagram! @Heartdoctordaddyshark Thank you to our Patrons as 2022 comes to a close.Support the showAnna's Buzzsprout Affiliate LinkBaby Blue Sound CollectiveSocial Media Pages:Apple PodcastsFacebookInstagramMeWeTwitterYouTubeWebsite
