Kayla’s Story

Being born with congenital heart disease, Kayla Shaw Rosa has been involved in health research from day one. Working with patients like Kayla helps Dr. Payhem Dehgani not only treat her better, but learn more about this rare condition and how it affects often under-represented members of the health care system.

“They can’t learn more about my rare condition if people like me are not willing to partake in such research, and I want them to be able to learn as much as they can so I am 100% always saying yes.”
