Pulmonary Hypertension and COVID-19: 4 Months Into the Pandemic
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA)’s next Facebook Live event will address pandemic-related questions, including what it means when your state or city reopens and the efficacy of masking. Find out your options if you’re afraid to go to the doctor’s office and how caregivers can help protect loved ones with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Join us at 8 p.m. EDT Friday, July 17 for “Pulmonary Hypertension and COVID-19: Four Months into the Pandemic.” Pulmonologist Murali Chakinala will discuss the latest information on COVID-19 and risks for PH patients. Dr. Chakinala also will address how PH patients and their families can stay safe.
