Join us as our host, Carol McDaniel, sits down with guest Adam Verigan, an All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine employee and former heart patient.
Adam was born with a congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot and grew up receiving his expert cardiac care at All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine. Now, Adam works alongside the same nurses and surgeon who helped save his life as a patient.
As an employee for over seven years, Adam, who is part of the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Heart Institute, manages the cardiology, perinatology and OB/GYN medical imaging systems. He also has the opportunity to speak with patients, families and even pregnant mothers of congenital heart defect babies to encourage them and give them hope. His inspiring story of hope and helping others was recently featured in the American Heart Association News.
Adam received his bachelor’s degree in Digital Arts and Sciences in Computer Engineering at the University of Florida and received his master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering with a focus in medical imaging at the University of South Florida.
Adam lives in Clearwater, Florida with his beautiful wife Beth and three joyful and healthy children, Eden (7), Glory (4) and Adam Jr (2).
