PHA’s International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions draws an increasing number of participants from around the world each year, and we are pleased to offer programming specifically for global attendees. In 2010, PHA hosted the First International Leaders’ Summit for PH association leaders from all over the world. Our 2014 Conference will feature the Third International Leaders’ Summit as well as many other programs for global patients, PH organization leaders and medical professionals.
