Pulmonary Hypertension Unit

World PH Day 2015

Only five days to go to MAY 5, WORLD PULMONARY HYPERTENSION DAY

Patient associations around the world are busy organising their celebrations for this important event which aims to raise awareness of pulmonary hypertension (PH), a little known and life threatening lung and heart condition. More awareness can lead to earlier diagnosis and initiation of treatment and this in turn can mean the difference between life and death! Time really matters in PH!

For our part in PHA Ireland we have gained the support of the Riverdance troupe. They will launch their Dublin show on May 5th to the media and in support of World PH day will wear our PH Ireland association t-shirts and proudly get breathless for PH. We’re hoping for a strong exposure to the media for Pulmonary Hypertension awareness by this very welcome support from the world renowned Riverdance.

Our European colleagues have asked that we please support WorldPHDay by joining the  Thunderclap campaign at https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/24628-world-ph-day-2015…
