Welcome to the HCMA!
To learn about our founder visit “Lisa’s Story”.
The HCMA is structured with medical advisors governing all of the medical content provided by the HCMA and a Board of Director governing the day-to-day operations and growth. The HCMA is supported by grants and donations. The HCMA does not profit from referrals to any center, devices, and medications or from any information given to assist visitors to our site or members.
Information shared here should be discussed with your health care provider and we ask that patients and families remember that each person is different and results will vary from individual to individual. Further, we often recommend second opinions or evaluations from specialists in the field of HCM. This should not be viewed as a negative reflection on community based physicians; we have the utmost respect for them and encourage open communication with them at all times. Should you or your physician find fault in information shared here we ask you please advise us so that prompt attention can be given to the matter.
We sincerely thank the many physicians who provide support to the HCMA and our members. These physicians advise the HCMA in various forms from speaking at our annual meetings or simply assisting with questions and concerns of our members. Our Lead Medical Advisor is Dr. Barry J. Maron of the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation.
