The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) can’t wait to welcome you in Atlanta, Georgia, for PHA 2022 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions. PHA’s biennial conference brings together more than 1,400 people with pulmonary hypertension, caregivers and medical professionals. Next year brings the overdue opportunity to connect, celebrate survival and learn about advances in pulmonary hypertension research.

Call for abstracts
PHA is accepting proposals for research abstracts for PHA 2022 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions. Submissions are due Feb. 4.

Theme contest
The winning theme of the PHA 2022 Theme Contest is PHacing the Future Together, submitted by Tina Barley of Hamilton, Alabama.

The theme was chosen from more than 100 ideas submitted by more than 80 individuals. A committee of PHA stakeholders reviewed the theme options and chose PHacing the Future Together because of its message of unity after the past four years apart. The PHA 2022 theme will be featured on PHA’s website, email campaigns, social media, the program book and in on-site signage.

Tina Barley’s daughter Caitlin had pulmonary hypertension (PH) for five years and passed away in 2010. She was 15 years old. Tina and Caitlin attended PHA’s 2008 Conference in Houston, Texas. Tina will receive a $25 Amazon gift card, a one-year individual PHA membership and PHA swag.
