We all know someone with hypertension (aka high blood pressure)–nearly a third of people over the age of 20 in the United States have it. It’s a seriously health issue, but it’s common and relatively easily treated. Pulmonary hypertension sounds like it would be a similar malady, and in some ways it is, but it’s also much rarer and far more serious. Because it’s currently an incurable condition that can be extremely deadly, you’d think that it gets a lot of attention from the medical establishment. However, because only about 1,000 new cases are diagnosed every year, it doesn’t. Pulmonary Hypertension Association is trying to change that. They are a Silver Spring, MD based non-profit that is working to “to find ways to prevent and cure pulmonary hypertension, and to provide hope for the pulmonary hypertension community through support, education, research, advocacy and awareness.”
Since I’m not a Doctor, I’ll let one explain pulmonary hypertension to you in the video below (click here if the video doesn’t load):
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association is truly working on all fronts when it comes to the illness. They’re not just focused on research or support or any other single area. They want to bring together everyone with an interest in improving the lives of people with PH, and do whatever it takes to continue the progress that they’ve achieved. If you’d like to join that mission, skip over Pulmonary Hypertension Association’s Jobs page (which has no current postings) and head straight for the Development Associate position posted on Idealist. It looks like a great opportunity for new or recent grad.
