Every day of November as part of Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month, the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) is posting “PHaces of Hope” on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. Due to the great response, PHA will continue to post PHaces into December so that everyone who wants to share their hope can be part of this year’s campaign.
