Pulmonary hypertension (PH) community members sent more than 500 messages to Congress during the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA)’s “Together Through Advocacy” campaign. They asked lawmakers to protect people with PH during COVID-19 and beyond.

But the need to share your PH story with Congress doesn’t stop there. Advocacy August is just around the corner. Members of Congress leave Washington, D.C., for the month to meet with constituents in their home states. This year, many of those meetings will take place by phone, but they are still critical. August “visits” reinforce elected officials’ understanding of what it’s like to live with PH. Let them know how they can help.

With PHA’s support, you can share the impact of PH on your life and ask your representatives and senators to pass COVID-19 legislation that matters to the entire community. PHA can help:

  • Schedule your call.
  • Plan what you want to say.
  • Answer questions and follow up.
