PH Professional Network

Invitation from the Network Chair

“Joining PH Professional Network is the first step you can take toward staying well-informed”
- Amy Kimber, RN, APNP, Chair of PH Professional Network

Dear Colleague,

For more than two decades, the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) has worked with patients, families, caregivers and medical professionals to raise awareness, to provide resources, education and support, and to fund research that will ultimately lead to a cure for pulmonary hypertension (PH).

The PH Professional Network (PHPN) is a diverse group made up of the many individuals involved in PH practice, including nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, social workers, dietitians and more. We recognize the importance of collaboration across many disciplines and work to provide support and targeted resources for all of those involved in PH patient care.

PHPN was established in 1999 to provide educational opportunities and facilitate networking among allied health professionals involved in the care of PH patients. Since its founding, PHPN has helped build links among allied health professionals around the U.S. and abroad. The colleague-to-colleague connection that PHPN provides has significantly contributed to improved care and outcomes for PH patients and families.

Joining PHPN is the first step you can take toward staying well-informed about the clinical research arena, the treatments that are available for PH patients and the provision of optimal patient care. By providing a network of support and resources, PHPN makes sharing knowledge easier so that allied health professionals do not have to “reinvent the wheel.”

PHPN’s success comes from the dedication of its members who understand the importance of working together toward a common goal. There are so many ways to be an active member in PHPN, such as attending a conference or symposium, writing articles for our newsletter, or serving as a mentor. We encourage you to learn more about our committees and member benefits and we hope you will join us as a new member of PHPN.
