"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
The 2014 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions provides many educational and networking opportunities for PH patients and family members. Educational sessions led by both medical professionals and members of the community will allow you to continue learning about the many aspects of PH from both experts in the field and PH peers, while networking and social opportunities will allow you to meet other patients and family members and swap stories.
