Webinar Monday: Drug & Toxin Associated Pulmonary Hypertension

Next week is Pulmonary Hypertension Week at the American Thoracic Society! PHA and ATS have teamed up to provide information on the ATS website and to their communities. Monday we will kick off the week with a webinar on Drug and Toxin Associated Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.

What does that mean, you ask? Dr. David S. Poch of UCSD Medical Center will talk about anorexigen, or appetite suppressant, associated pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH); some of the newly implicated drugs such as the cancer drug dasatanib; what we know about PAH and stimulants used to treat ADHD; and methamphetamine associated PAH.

Please join us and share this with anyone you know who may be affected.
