Eastern Regional PH Symposium

We welcomed over 200 PHighters to our first Eastern Regional Symposium in Toronto on October 13th-14th. With attendees coming from across Eastern Canada, we had the pleasure of reuniting with old PHriends and meeting new members of the Canadian PHamily. We presented a full day of learning sessions and discussion groups designed to give participants the knowledge, skills, and confidence for successfully managing life with PH. Thank you to our speakers and group leaders for sharing their time and expertise!
