Pulmonary Hypertension is a rare and debilitating condition that can prove fatal in as little as three years unless specialized treatment is given.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association has developed an accreditation process for health care facilities throughout the nation that have the ability and commitment to serve the needs of those with pulmonary hypertension. Recently three more centers have been accredited:
- Herma Heart Center at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, Wisconsin (yes, sadly children can have PH too)
- Orlando Health Heart Institute Pulmonary Vascular Disease Program – Orlando, Fla.
- Yale Pulmonary Vascular Disease Program – New Haven, Conn.
For more information contact the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, which won the Abbey S. Meyers Leadership Award, from National Organization for Rare Diseases for their commitment to patient education, advocacy and service to those with PH.
And if you have Pulmonary Hypertension – pull out your calendar and reserve June 17-19th for PHA’s international conference!
