On March 7, 2015, the LSU Nursing Alumni Association & the Pulmonary Hypertension Association will be putting on a 1 mile walk/5K race along with a silent auction to raise money and awareness for PH. PH is a debilitating, life-threatening illness currently with no cure. It causes high blood pressure in the lungs, which produces breathlessness and ultimately threatens life itself. Money raised from the event will provide improved patient care, expand medical research, and to provide further education and awareness of PH to future LSU Health New Orleans School of Nursing graduates who will provide nursing care to PH in a variety of clinical settings.
