The Pulmonary Hypertension Association is seeking speakers for PHA 2022 International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions. PHA 2022 is set for June 10-12, 2022, in Atlanta. The theme is Facing the PHuture Together.

People with PH, family members, caregivers and health care professionals may submit applications to present breakout sessions related to:

  • New diagnosis.
  • Young adulthood.
  • Living with PH.
  • Caregiver experiences/challenges.

We also are looking for Spanish-language presentations on similar topics.

The PHA 2022 planning committee will review and evaluate the applications based on the following criteria:

  • Does the presentation fit the track and topic selected?
  • Is the topic relevant to the community?
  • Are the solutions presented new or innovative?
  • Can the solutions presented be easily duplicated or implemented by the community?

To be considered, submit your application by Jan. 4.

Scientific Sessions
PHA also is accepting applications for abstract and symposia proposals for the Scientific Sessions. Abstracts should report original basic or clinical research or interesting/informative cases. Encore abstracts are welcome as long as the work doesn’t infringe upon copyrights or proprietary or personal rights of any third party.

Proposals can cover research or clinical management topics as solo presentations, debates or roundtable/panels. All applicants must have PHA professional memberships.

The Scientific Session Committee will review and rank submissions through a predetermined scoring rubric. Apply by Jan. 4.

The theme for the Scientific Sessions is Vision for the PHuture: The Evolving Science and Management of PH.

Mark your calendars
