Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia/Cardiomyopathy Program

The mission of the Johns Hopkins ARVD/C Program is three-fold. One goal is to provide education for patients and physicians about ARVD/C. A second goal is to faciliate the evaluation and management of patients with known or suspected ARVD/C. And the third, and most important goal, is to provide new knowledge of ARVD/C through our research efforts.
