Ladies and Gentlemen!

We kindly remind this event aims at continuing the work initiated in 2019, the first conference “Pulmonary Hypertension in children (PHC)” took place in Gdańsk when altough the original intention was to launching a series of conferences held under the auspices of the Pulmonary Circulation Section of the Polish Cardiac Society, this was unfortunately not possible due to the epidemiological situation related to COVID-19.
