Connect Locally With Members of Congress
If we don’t educate our elected officials about pulmonary hypertension, who will?
Your elected officials work for you. Meeting with them to share your story is the most effective way to gain their support for the Tom Lantos Pulmonary Hypertension Research and Diagnosis Act and other PH legislation.
Learn about three easy ways to connect locally with your elected officials and choose the one that’s best for you:
Invite Members of Congress to your Support Group Meeting
Introduce your senators and representative to the PH community by inviting them to speak at a support group meeting. Learn more

Attend a Town Hall Meeting
