Join the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) in November to celebrate Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month. Help us raise awareness about PH with downloadable tools and shareable resources.
This year’s theme is “PHacing the Future Day by Day.” Throughout November, PHA will educate people about risk factors and symptoms of pulmonary hypertension (PH) through its award-winning interactive, PH Awareness Month calendar. The calendar reveals a new fact or tool daily, along with downloadable resources to raise PH awareness.
“PHA and the entire PH community have made great strides over the years in creating awareness of this disease,” said PHA Board of Trustees Chair Tony Lahnston. “We continue that trajectory and face a bright future with improved support, diagnosis and treatment of PH through education, expanded resources and dedicated research. PHA staff and leadership remain committed to PHA’s mission to extend and improve the lives of those affected by PH.”
You can get your social media profiles PH Awareness Month ready with our digital toolkit. The toolkit includes social media profile and cover photos, social media graphics, an email signature and sample social media posts.
The toolkit also includes graphics and sample social media posts for PHA’s Day of Action on Nov. 17. This year, PHA encourages the community to sign the American Lung Association’s oxygen reform petition. People with PH, caregivers and others can find more ways to take action, such as sharing their oxygen access experiences, by visiting PHA’s Advocacy Action Center that day.
This year’s events include the PHA Live webinar “Focus on PH Research.” At 2 p.m. EST Nov. 15, Anna Hemnes, M.D., and Evan Brittain, M.D., M.Sc., of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, will discuss new advances in PH research and data presented at the PHA 2022 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions in Atlanta.
As part of PH Awareness Month, PHA will mark Nov. 9 as CTEPH Awareness Day. Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a rare form of PH caused by blood clots in the lungs that harden over time and impede blood flow.
Find information and videos about CTEPH and our CTEPH Awareness Day digital toolkit on our CTEPH Day page.
PHA will also celebrate Giving Tuesday on Nov. 29 as part of its PH Awareness Month activities.
