Israeli PH Association ConferenceThe Israeli PH Association
The Israeli PH association was founded by PH patients, for PH patients. As people living with PH we know our selves to be much more than our illness and the cost of our medical care.
We recognize the importance of the support we give to each other. We realize that it is our responsibility to start the process of change in our society and we understand that in order to strengthen our selves we need to strengthen the support systems around us.
We define our selves as valuable members of our community and through education and awareness are teaching our community to view us as such.
On Thursday the 21st of June, 2001, we held our first national conference. This was our first opportunity to physically break the barrier of loneliness and unit.
From the first Israel PH Association Conference
"Looking back at the conference I feel it was one of the most wonderful events in my life. There was an amazing atmosphere of love and support."
The conference was
attended by: patients, family members, doctors, nurses and representatives
People arrived from all over Israel — Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Nazareth, Haifa, Kibbutz Degania …
The agenda included
elections for the board, presentation of the association's goals and a
Professor M. Kramer on the topic of: Current Treatments for Pulmonary Hypertension.
During recess it was
wonderful to see how people started reaching to one another, introducing
offering support and kind words of advice.
We all ended the evening
feeling less alone and very hopeful and optimistic about the future, our
our new association.

PHCentral is committed to the expression of diverse opinions from members of the PH Community.
We feel strongly that free and open discussion regarding PH will assist in the generation and the refinement of new and existing ideas. To that end, we provide the opportunity for anyone from the medical and patient communities to submit editorials, letters to the editor or short articles on a PH-related topic. We will be encouraging opposing points of view. Areas may include treatments, causes, advocacy, disability, etc.
