In honour of Rare Diseases Day, we look forward to presenting this webinar on Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH): Treatment pathways and your care plan.
Our expert clinician will provide an overview of PAH and an insight into the current treatments and therapies to help get the most out of your treatment and care.
We will also be joined by two consumer representatives who will answer some of the most asked questions from the community around living well with PAH.
Both pre-submitted and live questions from participants joining the webinar will be answered by the panel.
Meet our panellists:
Tegan has been living with Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension since 1994. Tegan works as a Nurse Consultant in Cancer Care, she travels internationally as much as she can and when she’s not she can be found crocheting at home with her cat and dog. Tegan also volunteers time for Lung Foundation Australia and as a Consumer Representative at her treating hospital.
