Bistra Zheleva, Vice President of Global Strategy and Advocacy at Children’s HeartLink, was featured on the podcast “Heart to Heart with Anna,” a program devoted to the congenital heart defect (CHD) community. Bistra leads our advocacy strategy for children with CHD in low-resource countries and our global thought leadership strategy with governments and international development institutions.
Bistra shares what CHDs look like worldwide; what challenges people face on a daily basis in countries like Malaysia, Brazil, China, Vietnam and India; what organizations have come together to assist people worldwide; and how everyone, even a person with no medical training, can be part of the worldwide voice for the CHD community.
“Heart to Heart with Anna” features heart disease survivors, family members, medical professionals and others in the CHD community who wish to share their stories, expertise, and advice. This show is devoted to empowering, educating and enriching the lives of members of the CHD community.
