2023 PCORI Annual Meeting Headshot of Anitha John

Anitha John, M.D., Ph.D., is an adult congenital cardiologist and researcher at Children's National Hospital. Her research focuses on building vital infrastructure and patient engagement strategies to study long-term outcomes for patients born with congenital heart defects (CHD), a heterogenous group of rare diseases. Adults with CHD are a rapidly growing segment of the population, however, more long-term studies with patient partnerships are needed to understand the healthcare needs of this population. John serves as a co-principal investigator for a PCORI-funded study on redefining outcomes and navigation to adult-centered care. She is also a principal investigator for a capacity-building engagement award focused on reducing maternal morbidity in CHD.
