The Canadian SADS Foundation is pleased to announce that in January 2023 we will be introducing Let’s Talk SADS Live, a brand new live webinar series that will be streamed on our Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube channels. We are excited to bring a Canadian perspective to many of the topics surrounding SADS conditions in Canada and hope we can provide an outlet to get your questions regarding these topics answered by a Canadian SADS expert!

Dr. Shubhayan Sanatani obtained his MD from UBC in 1993, completed a Pediatric Residency at Queen’s University and a Pediatric Cardiology fellowship at UBC with advanced training in cardiac electrophysiology at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children and UBC. Dr. Sanatani joined the faculty as the Director of Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology at BC Children’s Hospital in 2001. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2008 and full Professor of Pediatrics in 2017. Dr. Sanatani assumed the role of Division Head and Medical Director of the Children’s Heart Centre in 2015, and is the Section Head of the Heart Rhythm Service. He holds the Canadian Certified Physician Executive (CCPE) credential. He is an internationally-recognized expert in childhood heart rhythm disorders. Dr. Sanatani’s academic focus includes sudden unexpected death in the young, and his collaborative approach to clinical and translational research have supported 200 publications in several different academic journals. We are thrilled to have Dr. Sanatani host this new series.

We would like to extend a thank you to Alice Lara, Dr. Michael Ackerman, and the SADS US team who have led the way in providing SADS patients with an accessible & interactive live webinar. We are excited and honored to extend this reach from a Canadian perspective. This couldn’t be accomplished without the collaboration and support with SADS US.

Our first episode will air on Tuesday, January 24th, 2023 at 12PM ET. Stay tuned!
