Patient Support Call on Aug. 28

Our monthly support phone call for pulmonary hypertension patients will be on Aug. 28 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT this month.

Our support calls are a space where those affected by PH can support each other, develop friendships, share thoughts and ideas, obtain information from each other and learn coping skills in a non-judgemental and caring atmosphere. Participants share “it helps to know you're not alone in this.”
