Being diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension can be extremely difficult. Readjusting your life after a diagnosis like that can be tricky, but there are several things you can do. Educating yourself is one thing you can–and should–do.
November is Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month and there are a lot of ways you can help raise awareness. To get you started, we’ve put together a list from blogger Serena Lawrence on how you can help spread the word about PH.
1. Sharing is caring
With social media, it can be very easy to share videos that explain the severity of pulmonary hypertension and the impact the disease can make on someone’s life. PH Associations and other organizations often make quick media clips that show the impact of pulmonary hypertension, while also explaining what it is. Sharing these powerful videos is a great way to get others engaged and educated.
