Team PH to Announce 2020 Pulmonary Hypertension Research Award Winner

Nonprofit Team PHenomenal Hope (Team PH) will announce the 2020 winner of the PHenomenal Impact Fund for Global PH Research Award at its first ever virtual research town hall on Saturday, July 11 at noon EST. In this virtual town hall, Team PH along with clinical experts will showcase the latest research in the area of pulmonary hypertension (PH), in focused talks geared toward the community, and announce the 2020 research award.

PH is a rare disease that causes high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs, which puts unnecessary stress on both the heart and then lungs. Currently, there is no cure, and, eventually, it can be fatal. One of the most aggressive symptoms of the disease is shortness of breath, which prevents patients from being able to do ordinary things, such as climbing the stairs, without becoming exhausted.

The goal of this webinar, presented by Actelion, a Janssen Pharmaceutical Company of Johnson and Johnson, is to bring together PH community members including doctors, nurses, researchers, patients, and caregivers and present the latest clinical trial findings in the treatment of PH. Dr. Vineet Agrawal, 2019 research award recipient, will also share his findings in the work supported by our 2019 award. There will be an opportunity for the audience to ask the presenters questions.

The organization will also use this time to announce the researcher who will receive a $50,000 research award to further their explorations into pulmonary hypertension. This will be the second year that Team PH has awarded from the PHenomenal Impact Fund. This fund was started by grass roots PH patient fundraising through the PHenomenal Hope 5K in Pittsburgh PA, and continued through other patient-directed fundraising events since Team PHenomenal Hope was founded in 2012.

Team PH founder and president Patricia George shares,”This is a day to celebrate pulmonary hypertension research with Team PHenomenal Hope! Each year we fund research, we view it as an investment of funds raised through the hard work of PH patients in our race to make a difference in this disease.”
