PHA Meeting Planning Associate
Hello all! I write this only hours before I head down to Florida for Conference and I couldn’t be more excited! I have had the privilege of spending the last few months working on our 2012 Conference Scholarship Program, which means I’ve probably spoken to a large number of you. The popularity of our program grew tremendously this year. In 2010 we received 376 applications; this year that number grew to 412! And out of that 412, 283 were able to accept our scholarship offer, compared to 186 in 2010. This year we gave out $226,855 in scholarships!
Here is a little background on the community attending this year thanks to the generosity of our donors:
Out of the 412 applications we received (with some being represented in more than one category):
- 278 have never been to Conference
- 9 were diagnosed in 2012
- 29 were diagnosed in 2011
- 47 were diagnosed in 2010
- 48 are parents of children with PH
- 122 are Support Group Leaders or Support Line Volunteers
I’ll see you in Orlando!
