Make PHriends in Congress this November.

During Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month, while everyone is talking about PH and #AHeartCures, get your Members of Congress in on the conversation. Use our new Twitter tool to easily reach them on social media, or check out other advocacy options at

With one short Tweet, you can make your voice heard, help advance the PH bill, and increase awareness of PH today.

  • Step 1: Click here, fill in your address and hit “take action.”
  • Step 2: A PHA message will appear that you can use in your message to your Member of Congress on Twitter.
  • Step 3: Now add some of your own words! In the message box tell congress who you know who has PH and needs their help. (ex: My mom has PH and needs your help!) Please remember you only have 140 characters.
  • Step 4: Hit send! You have just reached out to Congress.

Ready for the next step?

Your elected officials work for you. Talking with them and sharing your story is the most effective way to gain their support. PHA can set up a phone or in-person meeting for you and provide all the information and materials you need. Email us to get started!
