Team PHenomenal Hope PH Awareness Webinar Series – Fall 2023
Team PH will celebrate PH Awareness Month, November, with a series of accessible educational webinars (via Zoom) for people living with PH, caregivers, medical professionals, and other members of the community. This year we are starting things early, beginning in September, then October, leading up to our final webinar during PH Awareness month in November. We look forward to hosting specialists in the field to provide clear education on the following topics that can require breakdowns and the opportunity for Q & A. The webinars will cover:
1. Current PH Research and Evolving Therapies – Watch the recording here.
