From the Famous Kitchen Table

This year's Conference theme is The Power of One: From the Kitchen Table to Around the World. The Pulmonary Hypertension Association began by four women meeting around a kitchen table in Florida. Our 10th International PH Conference and Scientific Sessions has brought us all back to Florida where we were founded, and at the Conference opening yesterday we got to see the famous kitchen table and the three remaining women who sat around the table at that original meeting: Pat Paton, Dorothy Olsen and Judy Simpson.

Last night at dinner it was an amazing sight to see the huge ballroom filled up. As one of the speakers pointed out, we had gone from one kitchen table to 140! The kitchen table is displayed in the Exhibit Hall, and you can see me above taking in this precious moment.
