The 2017 PHPN Symposium, Navigating the Future: Individualizing Patient Care in the Face of Increasingly Complex Treatment Options, was held in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area on Oct. 5-7, 2017. Health care professionals gathered to learn, share and connect through general and breakout sessions, exhibits and research posters. On Thursday, Oct. 5, attendees took to Capitol Hill to advocate for people living with PH and discuss issues that affect their patients and practices with Senate staff. Attendees also participated in a networking Fun Walk to raise over $6,000 to send PH patients to the upcoming 2018 PH Conference in Orlando, Fla.

The PHPN Symposium is an event held once every two years that brings together nearly 500 PH-treating health care professionals to learn and earn CME/CE; share research among peers; and network with other health care professionals. The 2017 PH Professional Network (PHPN) Symposium marks the eighth biennial PHPN Symposium. The event was hosted by PHA and PHPN and planned by the PHPN Symposium Committee. This year’s committee was led by Chair Michelle Cash, MSN, RN, APRN and Vice-Chair Martha Kingman, DNP, FNP-C.
