Email Groups

Note: Our community email groups are being phased out in the coming weeks due to the launch of our online social network, myPHA! Please refer to myPHA for connecting online to members like you. 

Connect with other PHers, share support and information, network and make PHriends via email discussion groups. Worried about finding too many messages in your Inbox? Choose to receive group communication as one daily digest or even set your account to no email and check message online at the group site.
