About the Society
The Pediatric and Congenital Electrophysiology Society (PACES), a nonprofit organization, is an international group of physicians and allied professionals dedicated to improving the care of children and young adults with cardiac rhythm disturbances.
The group's primary mission is to foster high-quality collaborative research and exchange of ideas on arrhythmia topics that are particularly relevant to infants and children, or patients of any age with congenital heart disease.
The society will, in addition, strive to represent its members on issues pertaining to education in pediatric electrophysiology and related health care policies.

News & Events
There have been so many positive responses to my slide of George Floyd at the annual meeting that I feel compelled to write to the group.
We are a special group of people – by inclination and training - who take care of some of the most vulnerable patients in healthcare: children with heart problems. By nature we are compassionate and find it hard to see people suffer. The sight of a grown man pleading for his life, unable to breathe and calling out for his mother is one of the most horrifying and heartbreaking images I have ever witnessed. And like all of you, I have been witness to many a heartbreaking scene in my life.
