Make a Difference in the PH Community: How to Apply for a Lantos Community Service Award

This event has already taken place. A recording is now available. View recording.

Meeting Description:

Do you see a challenge in the PH community and have an idea for how to solve it? A Lantos Community Service Award can provide you with money and support to make your idea a reality.

For example, when Katie Grace Groebner began IV treatment for her PH at age 5, she needed a bag for her pump. Her mom's search for a child-appropriate bag led to a search for something that would make living with PH easier for young PHers everywhere and eventually to a Lantos Community Service Award.

Learn more about how to get support for your idea during this live webinar with PHA staff. Award winners may even receive a $1,000 scholarship for PHA's International Conference!
