Conference Scholarship Program
Scholarships are designed to help patients who could not attend Conference without financial support to benefit from all that Conference has to offer.
PHA’s International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions is the largest PH meeting in the world, and the 2016 International PH Conference will be no exception. An experience like no other, Conference brings together hundreds of pulmonary hypertension patients to share their concerns and triumphs, receive the most up-to-date medical information on living with PH, and network with the leading medical professionals in the PH field. It is an experience PHA believes no PH patient who is able to attend should miss.
PHA is committed to assisting as many PH patients as possible to attend this life-changing event. For the 2014 International PH Conference, the Conference Scholarship Program was able to help 350 PH patients and caregivers attend Conference who otherwise would have been unable due to financial constraints.
For PHA's 2016 International PH Conference, taking place June 17-19, 2016, in Dallas, Texas. PHA will continue this tradition by assisting as many PH patients as possible through the Conference Scholarship Fund.
Here's what two 2014 Conference Scholarships recipients told us:
“Thank you so much for providing me the opportunity to attend my first PH conference. It was a fantastic experience and I learned so much. I am looking forward to the next conference in Dallas. Thank you again for blessing me in so many ways!”
"I want to thank PHA for awarding me the scholarship. I was so wonderful to be able to attend my first PHA conference. Not going to miss one if I can help it."
