PHA Ireland featured in Mariposa Journal 2021

We’re delighted that PHA Ireland feature in PH Europe’s Mariposa Journal’s winter edition for 2021 covering both the PHull Bull Triathlon awareness and fundraiser event in September 2021 and the release of the bespoke Pulmonary Hypertension (exercise) rehabilitation programme to coincide with PH awareness week in November 2021.  The article details the contributions of Patrick Corkery (a former patient with PH, who swam
the English Channel, just 20 months after pulmonary endarterectomy surgery) and the PH Mater Hospital team inspiring and delivering the PHBull Tri event – read more here-. Also detailed is the work of Ciara McCormack, an expert clinical exercise physiologist working with PHA Ireland in devising a bespoke Pulmonary Hypertension (exercise) rehabilitation programme. It aims to provide PH patients with an opportunity to engage in some light exercises within their own home to help maintain their aerobic fitness and muscular strength – see the video here-.
