Featured on our PH News homepage is this eye opening and inspirational column, “Israeli Group Pushes for Better Awareness and Treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension”.
It covers a subject that is all too common among PH patients; years of misdiagnosis and even skepticism from doctors that there is anything wrong.
PH doesn’t just touch our corner of the world but throughout and this column brings to light just how important advocacy is for all. When we talk about spreading awareness maybe we need to think more about how far we should be spreading it.
So true Colleen,
I can’t help but think of all the countries that are less fortunate than ours . There are so many ways we can improve with our healthcare but at the same time we are way more fortunate than other areas of the world. There is such a need for advocacy all around and the fact that there is a delay in diagnosis everywhere else is so heartbreaking. The more awareness we spread and the more we let our voices be heard the better it will hopefully be eventually.
