Registration begins at 11:30 a.m.

Join us when Dr. Stephen Chan from UPMC will do a presentation on:

  A biological sketch of pulmonary hypertension


Ever wonder how it all began? Dr. Chan will give an historical perspective of the disease since it's first known description in 1891.  This does sound very interesting and questions and answers will follow the presentation.

Presentation will begin at 12:15 and will continue during lunch.

Our chat and share time will be after the presentation.

Please RSVP to Merle by April 15th either by phone or email:
