Volunteer with PHA

“Volunteer Night makes me feel like I am part of the PHamily. It's a great place to go between support groups. Love it!”
—Kimberlee, Silver Spring, Md.

PHA's many volunteers enjoy the satisfaction of fighting back against pulmonary hypertension while giving back to the PH community. By joining the ranks of volunteers, you can help make our community even stronger.

Whatever your specific skills and interests, we have a volunteer role for you to fill. Whether you want to work behind the scenes or have direct contact with PH patients, there's an opportunity available for everyone with the time and interest.
