Summer Training for Young Patient Advocates

FIRST Summer Training for Young Patient Advocates – Vienna – July 2017

We received the following information from PHA Europe about a unique and exciting opportunity for young people with an interest in pulmonary hypertension to learn about advocacy.

‘We have a unique opportunity to start preparing future PH fighters in an organised way.  The European Patients’ Forum will hold the first Summer Training for Young Patient Advocates.  If you can identify young people aged 18-30 years old who have an interest in pulmonary hypertension, you have the possibility to give them the chance to know what advocacy is, how to identify the needs of the community and how to identify and address the right stakeholders to make things happen’

We’ve been invited  to present candidates to participate in the leadership programme and  encourage our young members to apply for this Summer training.  PLEASE NOTE – the deadline for applications is 3rd February 2017.

Applications should be submitted to:
