“PH is a debilitating disease and we offer an integrated approach to care that brings together specialists in cardiology, pulmonology, critical care and transplant to evaluate each patient,” said Patricia George, M.D., a pulmonologist at UPMC’s Comprehensive Pulmonary Hypertension Program.
To raise awareness of PH, UPMC is a proud sponsor of Team PHenomenalHope, a four-person cycling team including Dr. George that will be participating in the 2014 Race Across America to raise money for PH research and educate the public about the disease. You can support the team at two upcoming events in Pittsburgh. Find out more here.
“Our goal is not only to train and race, but to also use this as a platform to raise awareness about pulmonary hypertension, a disease for which there are treatments but no cure,” Dr. George said. “As we train and race in honor of those living with this disease, we hope to inspire others along the way to perhaps ride a bike or walk or do whatever they can to support the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. We also hope to inspire people to join our efforts by donating money to fund research for a cure.”
