Conference Opening

Dr. Michael McGoon at PHA's 2012 Conference

Going All Out in the Race Toward a Cure
Friday, June 20, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
In clinics and labs, pulmonary hypertension researchers are moving as fast as they can toward a PH cure. During this year's Conference, one of them, Dr. Patty George, is also speeding from coast to coast with the women of Team PHenomenal Hope, cycling, day and night, in the Race Across America, culminating a year of raising awareness and funds for PHA. We open this year's Conference celebrating the challenges and rewards of the journeys we take together as a community − in clinics, on bikes and at home, school and work − in one of our lives' toughest races, the race to conquer PH.
