PH and HIV
Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 3:30 p.m. EST
Join the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) for the PHA Live event “PH and HIV” on Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 3:30 p.m. EST. As human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) treatments improve and patients live longer, more people with HIV are developing cardiovascular diseases, including pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Christopher F. Barnett, M.D., M.P.H., will discuss the risk for developing PAH in people with HIV, how it is diagnosed and current treatment options.
Participants may email us any questions they would like addressed during the event by Monday, Dec. 6.
