Great News! Our media outreach efforts at the American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions are paying off!

We have just found out that Amy Yasbeck (wife of the late John Ritter) is scheduled to appear on CBS’s The Early Show tomorrow morning during the 7:30 half-hour. It is anticipated that she will talk about the TAD Coalition (www.tadcoalition.org), the new AHA/ACC Guidelines for Diagnosis and Management of Patients with Thoracic Aortic Disease, and the new Ritter Rules, which include Marfan syndrome as one of the genetic risk factors that increase the risk of aortic dissection.

Check your local listings for your CBS affiliate and tune in!

Thanks!
