Teens raise awareness

Camille, a PH patient, is currently attending college


Two years ago I was approached by Children Special Services to participate in a study conducted by Michigan State’s first-year medical school students. The study entailed meeting with two first-year medical students about once every two months. We talked about my condition, how I live my life and my medical treatment. The two medical students were very nice and very interested in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension and the lifestyle that comes with living with it.

This is something I still do today, and I love doing it. It helps me educate first-year med students and spread the word about PH in my own community. My hope is that one of the medical students may graduate from medical school and want to specialize in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension and further the research for a cure.
