Is your medical team involved with a local pulmonary hypertension support group? Support groups appreciate collaboration with local medical professionals, especially when doctors connect their patients with local groups. Find out if a group is meeting near you: contact Debbie Castro at Debbie@PHAssociation.org or 301-565-3004 x755.
Have you considered starting a support group for your area? You can hold meetings at your facility and the PHA can help get the word out to our patients. PHA works with doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals to help them start successful groups.
