Montgomery County Maryland County Executive Isiah Leggett presented a proclamation to Brad A. Wong, PHA President & CEO, declaring November Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month. The two discussed the need for greater awareness for both this rare disease and the challenges that patients and families living with pulmonary hypertension face. Montgomery County is located outside the Washington, D.C. metro-area and is home to PHA’s office. Raising awareness among the public, health care professionals, policy makers, influencers and elected officials about pulmonary hypertension patients’ needs, research priorities, and the impact of health care policies on access to care and quality of life is one of PHA’s key focus areas, and we thank County Executive Leggett and his staff for their efforts to amplify the voice of the PH community.
