Careers at PHA

In 1991, four women, gathered around a kitchen table, pioneered an organization to fight the rare disease that three of them had been diagnosed with. The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA), exists to support patients and caregivers fighting this rare disease, which can affect all people of all ages and backgrounds. Pulmonary hypertension is a chronic and life-changing lung disease that can lead to right heart failure if left untreated. We believe that anyone whose life has been touched by this difficult illness has the right to fight back as much as they are willing and able and our job is to empower them to do so.

PHA, a nonprofit organization, is unique because we support and engage all communities affecting and affected by pulmonary hypertension, including patients, caregivers, doctors, nurses, and other health professionals.

Since our founding, we have far outgrown the kitchen table, serving 16,000 members, offering high level medical and patient education, raising awareness of PH in the general public and medical communities, advocating for legislation, supporting research, and helping patients connect with others to end their isolation.

Our employees are entrepreneurial, creative, dedicated, passionate professionals, who are all working together to extend and improve the lives of those affected by PH.
