Each year, the United States Congress decides how much money to spend on federal programs and government agencies that have a powerful effect on pulmonary hypertension (PH) diagnosis, patients' access to treatments and research toward a cure. The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) makes it easy for you to learn about legislation affecting the PH community and to make a difference as a PH advocate.
We are so close to making PH history! Help us advance the Pulmonary Hypertension Research and Diagnosis Act (H.R. 3520 and S. 3361) by sending your Members of Congress an email asking them to support the bill. This bill will work towards better treatments and early diagnosis. Just fill in the blanks and hit send.

Your elected officials work for you. Meeting with them to share your story is an effective way to gain their support of legislation affecting PH patients. There are several ways to meet with your Members of Congress, including visiting their local office, attending a town hall or inviting your senator or representative to your support group meeting.
