Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month 2015

Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month

Coloring the World Periwinkle for 25 Years

Over the last 25 years, the periwinkle pin or ribbon has emerged as a powerful symbol of hope and courage — a symbol of the pulmonary hypertension community. Those pins and ribbons have been the catalyst for life-saving conversations and life-changing bonds that cross the borders of cities, countries and continents.

In November 2015, during Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month, community members put their own unique skills and talents to work raising awareness about PH. Here are some of the ways people got involved.
