Take action during Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month! Use the resources below to email, call or even visit your Members of Congress. Ask them to take action on the issues that impact the PH community every day.
“For me, it was important to remember that our Members of Congress are people just like us. When you meet with them, all you have to do is speak clearly and honestly and be prepared with PHA information. Also, having other PHers with you makes it all so much easier.”
“I am so happy that I had the opportunity to share about my sister’s situation. I want to do it again.”
“Being active in advocacy gives me another way to fight PH besides the physical fight. We all have the right to be heard by our elected representatives, so there’s nothing to fear… just do it!”
