"I was recently diagnosed, and coming to the Conference gave me the opportunity to meet a lot of people with PH and to learn so much, I never imagined possible. I go back home with a better understanding, less fear, and I can have an order in my mind about PH, symptoms and research. It was great to have access to so many experts." – Conference Attendee
