One of the ways the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) promotes quality patient care is through free education courses for health care professionals. Recent updates to PHA Online University, a digital platform for continuing medical education, include:
“Methamphetamine and Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension,” presented by Anna Hemnes, M.D.
