Hey I’m Alex! I’m studying Finance and Neuroscience at Tulane, and when I heard about Heart4Heart I knew I had to start a chapter at Tulane. Congenital heart disease doesn’t get enough attention, and the preventative surgeries are actually relatively inexpensive. Heart4Heart does a great job of providing donors with a specific project that they can see their money going towards, which I think is an important, and yet generally lacking feature of a lot of charities. Also, since the surgeries aren’t the most expensive it’s really gratifying to be able to see the tangible impact we are having on these children’s lives. I’m very excited to spread awareness about CHD and fundraise for these surgeries.
Hi! My name is Samuel Lipman and I am a Senior studying Neuroscience and Political Science at Tulane University. I am from New York City and enjoy snowboarding and playing soccer and basketball. I was VP of communications for the Science and Engineering school and conducted 2 years of research in neurobiology with a focus in learning and memory. I was raised with a deep understanding that there are people less fortunate than me. That is why I am committed to helping raise money and perform community service for those who need help. I joined H4H because i have always had an interest in the healthcare field and believe that I could make a difference to help a child get CHD surgery. I am excited to be one of the leaders of my Chapter and am committed to making a difference to positively impact children around the world.
Hey, my name is Henry Adams and I’m currently in my fourth year at Tulane University studying Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and have always loved art.

Being able to say that I am responsible for helping to save a life means the world to me.
Hi my name is Liz Byrom. I'm a marketing and management major at Tulane University from Evanston, Illinois.

The opportunity to put a smile on a child's face was one I could not turn down. I'm honored to be able to raise awareness and plan events and that will have a profound impact on the lives of these children.
Hello! My name is Alyssa and I am currently a junior, studying finance and marketing at Tulane University. I grew up in Lexington, Massachusetts, but I love the vibrant nature of New Orleans.
