Pam York wrote -Join our team! Help us support the cause! Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in your lungs and the right side of your heart. PH affects people of all ages and races. For those unfamiliar with PH, there is currently no cure. Our team is participating in ZebraPhest 2017 this year in memory of Dr. Christopher Spradley who passed away unexpectedly in 2015. After caring for those affected by PH, he decided more needed to be done. He was committed to increasing patient understanding, teaching them about new therapies, and improving their quality of life. Dr. Peter Yau, a friend and colleague of Dr. Spradley, continues to carry on the same dedication and passion for these patients. In his effort to stay current on the latest treatment options available, Dr. Yau remains enthusiastic about providing comprehensive care to patients and is optimistic about the future of PH. Alongside Dr. Yau, Dr. William Petersen provides his 32 years of experience. He also shares in our goal to remain dedicated to Dr. Spradley’ s passion to raise awareness and funds in support of finding a cure for PH. Please join our team or make a donation.
