Abstract

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) is a non-profit health organization, serving patients with pulmonary hypertension, their family members and the medical professionals who treat them. Its mission is to find ways to prevent and cure pulmonary hypertension, and to provide hope for the pulmonary hypertension community through support, education, and advocacy and awareness. PHA provides ongoing educational opportunities for patients and the medical community; the chance for patients to connect with others through support groups and online communities; print and online newsletters; and numerous other resources. PHA also funds cutting-edge research on pulmonary hypertension in collaboration with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the American Thoracic Society and the American Heart Association. Pulmonary Hypertension is a simplified name for a complex health problem: high blood pressure in the lungs. It is a rare and currently incurable, but increasingly treatable condition that affects both genders and people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds.
