56 State & Local Governments Proclaim Nov. PH Awareness Month

As of November 12, PHers in the U.S. have garnered 56 proclamations declaring November Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month from state and local governments across the country! Michelle Holden, from Florida gathered 34 of those proclamations and is well on her way to making it to her goal: 50 proclamations from government officials this November. You can see the full list of proclamations below as well as who secured them.

While the proclamations themselves raise awareness, some have gone one step further to use these proclamations to gain media coverage. Jen Cueva from Texas mentioned her proclamation from the Governor of Texas in a letter to the editor in the Galveston Daily News, and Kelley Skumautz in Minnesota wrote about a proclamation from the Governor of Minnesota in her neighborhood newsletter.
