Fighting for the Cause Online 2.0

July 13, 2011

Are you on Facebook? If so, this is the webinar for you! PHA’s Grassroots Campaigns Associate Elisabeth Williams and PHA community member Colleen Brunetti talk about how to use social networking sites to take action in support of pulmonary hypertension research and education. PHA’s Development Manager Jennifer Kaminski and PHA community member Lucia Martuccio discuss how you can go beyond Facebook to make a bigger impact and raise more funds using PHA’s easy online tools.

This webinar goes beyond our earlier webinar, “Using the Web to Fight Against PH”, which you can find in our Fight for the Cause Online section, along with other great resources.
