We all know those people who walk into a room and get noticed. Ok, maybe it's their spiked purple mohawks, or maybe it's their confidence. Their eye contact. Their refusal to believe for a second that people will react to their presence with anything but awe. Whatever the reason, those Life-of-the-Party-Lisas have the courage to raise their voices and tell their stories so the world is willing to listen. And with just a little education about what it takes to raise awareness (you'll be surprised at how easy it is -- no mohawks or megaphones required!), even the shyest Generation Hoper can find that courage too.
Next Tuesday, August 30, PH awareness all-star, Kim Ford, will be leading a webinar to teach other young adults with pulmonary hypertension how to make themselves heard by the media to raise awareness for pulmonary hypertension. With step-by-step instructions and tips and tricks from Kim, you won't want to stay a wall flower for long.
Increase PH Awareness and (Generation) Hope in the Media!
Webinar (Web Log-in and Phone Dial-in Required)
Tuesday, Aug. 30, 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 PT
Register now, and then tell us -- have you ever shared your PH story? If not, what would it take for you to contact your local newspaper or television station to tell them about pulmonary hypertension? A flask of magic courage potion? A teleprompter? Maybe a James Franco look-alike on the other side of the microphone?
