The medical programming at PHA’s 10th International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions promises to be an exceptional opportunity to bring the field’s top PH specialists together for education and networking. The Scientific Sessions program will bring together approximately 400 physicians, researchers, and allied health professionals with an interest in pulmonary vascular disease.  This year's topic, The Genetics of Pulmonary Hypertension, will feature PH experts sharing their knowledge of heredity in the field. Young investigators and seasoned PH professionals will participate in these sessions together, offering a unique opportunity for mentoring and growth in the field.

The programming begins on Thursday, June 21, with two educational dinner forums, one for members of PH Clinicians and Researchers (PHCR) and one for PH Professional Network (PHPN) members, focusing on important factors in PH care and scientific advancements in PH.

The Scientific Sessions program continues on Friday, June 22, with a full day of programming that will focus on this year’s theme, genetics. Esteemed speakers will lead sessions on topics ranging from PH and the BMPR2 pathway, to the role of microRNAs in PH. The day will also feature a robust presentation of abstract posters, and free-form panel discussions about the top abstracts. Medical professionals with all levels of experience are encouraged to attend the Scientific Sessions and review the posters.

While you’re here, we also invite you to take part in the PH Fundamentals: Continuing Education Sessions for Medical Professionals, which targets medical professionals interested in learning more about the basics of PH. These sessions will be held Friday through Sunday.

Physicians at the 10th International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions can receive a maximum of 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, and nurses can receive a maximum of 15.0 contact hours of nurse CE credit.
