2018 Western Regional PH Symposium

In September of 2018, PHA Canada welcomed nearly 200 PH patients, caregivers, medical professionals, and supporters to the first Western Regional PH Symposium in Vancouver, BC. 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!
