PHA Canada eNewsletter: Vol 4 #6 June 2014
Announcement: You can now contribute to PH Research through PHA Canada!
We are thrilled to announce that going forward, PHA Canada will be contributing funds towards research in pulmonary hypertension.
We understand that every patient and caregiver desires to contribute to research that aims to find a cure for PH. This will always be a cause that is close to our members’ hearts, and because of that, PHA Canada wants to help. If you are fundraising for PHA Canada, you now have the option of designating some of those funds towards research efforts. To learn more about contributing and why PHA Canada has moved in this direction, please visit our website
PHA Canada is excited to have a dedicated campaign developer working on our Early Diagnosis
project. Russell Bonaguro is a Masters’ student from Simon Fraser University. This summer, he will develop the campaign that will help the medical community become aware of the importance of correctly diagnosing PH at an early stage. By creating connections with physician groups, targeting conferences and meetings where awareness can be raised, and developing early diagnosis information tools, Russell hopes to promote the possibility that ‘Sometimes it's PH’ during a doctor’s visit. We’re excited to see what this campaign may achieve.
