Pulmonary Hypertension Support Group

Pulmonary hypertension is high blood pressure in the arteries in the lungs that can arise from numerous causes. Specific types of pulmonary hypertension will result in right heart failure if the condition goes untreated.

Many with this condition find it helpful to talk to others who understand their challenges and can offer support and advice. That's why we offer a free support group for patients with pulmonary hypertension. The group meets several times throughout the year.

At each meeting, you'll hear from guest speakers and meet others living with pulmonary hypertension. Light refreshments are provided and oxygen will be available if needed.

To register or learn more about Temple Lung Center’s free pulmonary hypertension support group, contact Deborah Simmons, CRNP, at 215-707-5864 or email deborah.simmons@tuhs.temple.edu.
