SPECIAL EDITION PHAWARE® PODCAST: How Decisions Today Can Shape the Future

The PAH Initiative and United Therapeutics are excited to bring you the PAH Today National Broadcast Series. This series of virtual events is intended for adult patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and their caregivers.

Advancements in the care and treatment of PAH are improving the lives of those impacted by this life-threatening disease. The National Broadcast Series will include insights and perspectives on today’s approaches to managing PAH from nationally recognized PAH healthcare providers. Join patients and caregivers across the nation to hear current considerations in the care of PAH.

This is the second of 4 PAH Today broadcasts to learn about risk status, an important part of today’s approach to treating PAH. You’ll hear how risk status gives your healthcare provider a new way to assess your progress, and how it could help determine whether more can be done to improve your symptoms today and down the road. Presented by Dr. Lana Melendres-Groves the Director of the Pulmonary Hypertension Program at the University of New Mexico and Nurse Practitioner Melisa Wilson. Learn more at:
