About Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes Foundation

The Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation Mission is to save the lives of children and young adults who are genetically predisposed to sudden death due to heart rhythm abnormalities. The SADS Foundation provides education and support to patients and families who are dealing with these conditions. We also distribute educational materials to hospitals, community centers, health care clinics, schools and libraries as well as sponsor educational programs for physicians and healthcare providers nationwide to raise awareness about the symptoms of these conditions and how to prevent and treat them.


Medical Education Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Holladay, UT
“Through this internship I was able to see the advocacy side of healthcare. As a future healthcare provider I was able to get a sneak peek into the continual education of physicians and how private non-profit organizations can increase the efficiency of a market. I also felt honored to get to work directly with the President of the SADS Foundation, Alice Lara.”
