After a four-year wait, PHA 2022 is two weeks away. Our International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions returns June 10-12 in Atlanta. As you plan your schedule, don’t forget to consider these pulmonary hypertension-related travel considerations:
If you haven’t already, contact your airline now to reserve wheelchair assistance at your home airport and Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The Atlanta airport’s seven terminals each are more than a mile long, which might make walking difficult. Each airline has representatives to provide wheelchair assistance at the airport, but you might encounter long lines if you wait to request assistance at check-in.
On the day of your flight, get to the airport early in case you have to wait for a wheelchair.
Medication and oxygen
Update your medication list, emergency contacts and other important documents that you plan to bring on your trip. Download our 10 Tips to Manage Medications and Oxygen at PHA 2022 for detailed information.

Plan for a COVID-test. Attendees must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test 48 hours within checking in to the conference. Find out how to get a home testing kit.
Visiting the U.S.? International attendees must provide proof of vaccination of whichever vaccines are approved in their home countries. Proof must be in English or Spanish.
