PHA’s International PH Conferences bring together more than 1,500 patients, caregivers, medical professionals and other friends of PHA every two years to share information on the latest research, treatments and lifestyle issues with PH.
Since its inception, PHA has served as the center point of the PH community's progress toward new research and treatments, increased awareness, education and support for the people who live and work with this disease on a daily basis.
PHA's International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions is the largest gathering of the pulmonary hypertension community in the world, and the 2018 Conference promises to be no different. Bringing together patients, caregivers and family members, nurses and other allied health professionals, physicians, researchers and leaders of PH associations from around the globe, Conference will provide three days of education, networking and support for the pulmonary hypertension community.
The exhibit hall at PHA’s International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions is not your ordinary tradeshow. Exhibit hall visitors range from kids and adults with pulmonary hypertension to family members of patients to the world’s leading PH medical professionals.
From simple beginnings - four women who met around a kitchen table in Florida in 1991 - the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) has evolved into an international community of over 16,000 pulmonary hypertension (PH) patients, caregivers, family members and healthcare professionals. While we have grown, PHA has stayed true to our roots and the vision and ingenuity of our founders.
