From a Kitchen Table to Congress: Join the Conference Advocacy Challenge!

"Never doubt how important your voices are. We need to hear from you, and our bosses need to hear from you about what is important to you."
–Sarah Mabry, Health LA in Senator Casey’s office

In one week, medical professionals, patients, caregivers, family members and loved ones will gather in Orlando for PHA’s 10th International PH Conference to learn about PH, connect with others and further the cause toward a cure.

Many will stand up and be counted in PHA’s Conference Advocacy Challenge as a community in favor of more PH research, medical education and public awareness about pulmonary hypertension. The PH community has been flooding Congressional offices all year with emails, calls, and visits to urge Members of Congress to cosponsor the Tom Lantos Pulmonary Hypertension Research and Education Act.

Conference is a chance to add 1500 voices to our cause. Write a letter urging your Members of Congress to cosponsor this bill.

Sign a Letter
Joining the Challenge is easy, and it only takes a few minutes. Most importantly, you don’t have to be a Conference attendee to join the Kitchen Table to Congress Challenge!
  • At PHA’s Conference! Stop by PHA’s Programs and Services Booth in the Exhibit Hall and sign a letter.
  • At Home! Visit and send your letters with a few clicks of the mouse.
