I think this Congress is unique in
the sense that you get to hear
so many people here in this Academic Medical Centre. It
brings everybody together under
the same umbrella, the roof of Academic Medicine.

To many medical professionals, this disease is oftentimes a mystery, impeding its recognition and treatment. This symposium aims to provide pertinent clinical pearls on the diagnosis, work-up and management of the various subtypes of PH, and clarify the “mysteries” surrounding this disease.
