Presentation by: Craig Broberg, MD, MCR
Knight Cardiovascular Institute Portland, Oregon
Dr. Broberg trained at the University of California San Francisco, the University of Washington, and Oregon Health and Science University before doing a two year fellowship in ACHD and cardiac MRI at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London. He has been Director of the ACHD program in Oregon for the past 9 years. He has given numerous educational symposia on ACHD topics. His clinical research emphasis is on the mechanisms of myocardial dysfunction in ACHD and the role of imaging, funded by a current K23 award from NHLBI and the American Heart Association. He is member of a multicenter group to design and instigate clinical trials in congenital heart disease, known as the Alliance for Adult Research in Congenital Cardiology (AARCC), and serves on the Medical Advisory Board for the Adult Congenital Heart Association.

Dr. Eric V. Krieger, MD FACC is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital and a member of the Seattle Adult Congenital Heart Service. He did a combined senior fellowship in adult congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, and advanced cardiac imaging at Boston Children’s Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His practice focuses on cardiac MRI and the care of adults with congenital heart disease. He serves as the associate fellowship director for the congenital heart disease fellowship as well as for the cardiovascular disease fellowship.
Presentation by: Anne Marie Valente, M.D.
Assistant in Cardiology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital and Assistant Professor in Medicine and Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School
Dr. Valente is board-certified in adult cardiovascular disease and pediatric cardiology. She is the Outpatient Director of the Boston Adult Congenital Heart (BACH) and Pulmonary Hypertension Program, Co-Director of the BWH Pregnancy and Cardiovascular Disease Program and a staff member of the Cardiovascular Magnetic Imaging (CMR) Program. Dr. Valente’s research interests include the use of imaging to determine mechanisms that contribute to ventricular dysfunction in adults with congenital heart disease, predictors of adverse outcomes in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot and management of women with heart disease during pregnancy.
