The Pulmonary Hypertension Association’s (PHA’s) PHPN Symposium, “Influencing the Practice: The Art and Science of Treating Pulmonary Hypertension,” Sept. 5-7, will feature a “limerick showdown” between Robert P. (Bob) Frantz, M.D., and Victor F. “Vic” Tapson, M.D. The two physicians will debate the hot topic, “To Treat or Not Treat mPAP of 20-24.” Dr. Tapson has been wowing crowds with his limericks at PHA meetings for years and will be taking the position “for treatment.” All these rhyming and educational moments are not to be missed on Sept. 6!
