2016 Conference Promotional Opportunities
The 2016 Conference marks 25 years of building a strong and effective community to fight pulmonary hypertension. At the beginning of those 25 years, there was nothing but a message to prepare for transplant or death. Today – with 13 FDA-approved treatments – we are moving rapidly down the path toward a treatable disease with good quality of life and a normal lifespan.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association’s (PHA) contribution to the rapid and positive advances in the field has been through the development of fluid and productive connections between all those with a stake in better quality of life, improved care and ever more advanced treatments. Doctors and nurses have connected productively. Medical professionals and patients and caregivers connect through a myriad of programs and activities. Industry and medical professionals and patients and caregivers connect in many ways that are appropriate in our highly regulated environment.
The structures PHA has put in place over the past 25 years are not accidental. They have been deliberately developed so that each person, each constituency can bring the best of what they have to offer to the table in common cause and for the common good.
PHA’s International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions is the one time – every two years – that all segments of the complex structure that is PHA physically come together…and it is powerful.
Doctors have told us Conference reminds them why they came to medicine. Patients have told us that their lives have been changed. Family members have spoken about the relief of meeting others dealing with the same fatigue. Those attending from industry have told us they see their work with new meaning. Parents have told us how their children have met important new friends living with the same realities. International leaders have made connections that help them make their own structures stronger.
Conference is a slingshot for the PH community, always creating new opportunities.
This vibrant biennial event drew more than 1,600 participants from 30 nations in 2014, and PHA anticipates even higher attendance at the 2016 Conference, making this the largest gathering of the pulmonary hypertension community in the world. As a matter of fact, for the first time, PHA will be moving some of our sessions for medical professional to the adjoining conference center.
Our Scientific Sessions, themed “PH around the World,” kick off the scientific program on Thursday evening and continue through the day on Friday. Following the International Leaders’ Summit, pre-conference programs for patients and family members begin on Thursday evening and Friday morning, with the 25th Anniversary Conference officially opening on Friday afternoon. Programming continues through Sunday afternoon with educational sessions led by patients, family members and medical professionals; skill-building workshops, support group meetings, facilitated and informal networking opportunities and the chance to peruse the exhibit hall.
