“We want to debate the key issues and controversies in this area and we want to communicate a real call to action to the medical community that CTEPH patients deserve better outcomes." Jacquie Thornton, CTEPH Futures Think Tank Chair

The Bayer-sponsored CTEPH Futures Think Tank brought together the CTEPH community from around the world to discuss and debate how we can do more for patients with CTEPH today and tomorrow.
