The Thoracic Aortic Disease (TAD) Coalition is a group of organizations and individuals who share a common mission of preventing premature deaths due to thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection. The Coalition works collaboratively to achieve the following goals:

  • Increase public awareness of factors predisposing to thoracic aortic aneurysms and acute aortic dissections (genetic and environmental factors)
  • Provide educational materials concerning the symptoms, clinical evaluation and medical management of thoracic aortic disease
  • Improve the diagnosis and management of aortic aneurysms by physicians and acute aortic dissections in the emergency room setting.
