The Year Ahead

"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." - Mother Teresa

As 2014 begins, we wanted to take this opportunity to start our own ripples here in the Midwest. The Midwest Chapter is the local arm of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, and we are proud to serve this vibrant community as PHA headquarters' "boots on the ground."

The role of the chapter is to assist in spreading PH awareness while helping to fund the vital patient and family services that PHA provides. The Chapter is here to serve and support the Midwest community, and we ask each and every one of you to help us create our ripples in 2014; here is a look at what's already in the works:

Warmest regards,
