PHA’s Special Events fundraisers are the perfect way to honor the causes near and dear to the PH community; they support essential PH research and PHA patient - and family - serving programs, all while raising much-needed awareness. Whether you are thinking about hosting an event, are currently planning your first fundraiser, or are an old hand at gathering your community together to raise funds and awareness, new and exciting information about PHA’s Special Events program is presented. We also offer an inside look at Sphere, our newest resource for online event registration and fundraising.

PHA's 2009-2010 monthly e-Learning Events series was made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer Inc.
