PHA Connects: Exercise and Pulmonary Rehab in PH

Exercise and cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation programs can improve the quality of life for many patients living with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Every PH patient should consult their health care team about safely starting an appropriate exercise program. Find out what you should ask before you begin exercising and how exercise may benefit you. Join the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) on August 21 at 2 p.m. EDT for a virtual town hall on “Exercise and Pulmonary Rehab in PH,” with pulmonologists Jim White and Daniel Lachant, presenters in PHA’s Introduction to Exercise video. In this interactive discussion, Drs. White and Lachant will answer your questions about exercise, cardiac and pulmonary rehab programs and PH. Learn more about the goals and benefits of a cardiac or pulmonary rehab program and how exercise affects your body.
