We are delighted to invite you to Pedirhythm IX  !

The new conference date is

Pedirhythm  is a great conference, connecting pediatric cardiologists from all over the world. Unfortunately in this year due to COVID-19 pandemic it was cancelled. However we are offering you Mini Pedirhythm – a digital conference which will be available through this website. The conference will be held online for the first time in history.

Taking advantage of online tools you  can participate in the event in an easy, pleasant and cost-free way. Looking forward to meeting you via internet this year and hopefully “in real life” next time.
