PHinding Your Hope: PHA’s 2018 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions
You are invited to attend the largest international gathering of pulmonary hypertension (PH) community members in the world. PHA’s 2018 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions will bring together nearly 2,000 people with PH (both newly-diagnosed and long-term survivors), families, caregivers, PH-treating health care professionals and researchers. This event is held once every two years, and 2018 marks the 13th year that PHA has hosted the PH community.
PHA’s 2018 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions will be held June 29 to July 1, 2018, in Orlando, Florida, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld.
- To provide a safe, nurturing and interactive space to help people living with PH — and their families and caregivers — feel more empowered.
- To share tips and resources on improving the quality of life for people living with PH.
- To disseminate knowledge about the latest advancements in research, treatment and care through medically-led sessions and an abstract poster hall.
- To contribute to future research that could lead to new discoveries through participation in the Research Room.
- To unite the PH community through the theme of PHinding Your Hope and celebrating the achievements that have helped people with PH live longer, healthier lives while looking toward the future and what’s on the horizon.
There is something for everybody at PHA’s 2018 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions. PHA has designed Conference with the entire family in mind — from field trips to a Kids’ Room and a Teen Lounge. In the heart of the world’s theme park capital, turn your trip into an extended vacation!
