Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of WMCHealth, was the lead center for a national, multicenter study on myocarditis, (inflammation of the heart muscle) in adolescents after COVID-19 vaccination.

Results of the study, in which cardiac imaging data was collected from hospitals around the country to help characterize myocarditis and to better understand its impact, were published recently in Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Supriya Jain, MD, an attending physician on the pediatric cardiology team at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and Director of Pediatric Cardiac MRI/Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging, was the lead author.
