CEO Update: 30 Milestones in 30 Years

How far we’ve come since our beginnings at a kitchen table! As the Pulmonary Hypertension Association celebrates its 30th anniversary, we are proud to unveil an interactive timeline that provides the shared history of our organization and the PH community. Although we’ve accomplished far more than “30 Milestones in 30 Years,” the timeline highlights major achievements over our first three decades.

Diane Ramirez of Lexington, North Carolina, was diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension in 1987.

Detroit Family Raises Money to Provide Hope

Candace and her family became involved in the Detroit O2breathe Walk to give back and get more involved in the PH community. She met others with PH like me through the walk, giving her hope and people to relate to.

Act Now: Ask Congress to Increase NIH and CDC Funding

As Congress develops the FY 2022 federal budget, ask your members of Congress to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Pulmonary hypertension researchers depend on NIH grants to support their work.
