Advance for Physicians Assistants: PA climbs Mt. Kilimanjaro for a cause

Friday, January 15th, 2010

Jessica Lazar, a physician assistant at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, is preparing to scale great heights to raise awareness of pulmonary hypertension, a disease that affects the heart and lungs of approximately 100,000 Americans. 

In the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Lazar is cited as one of three health care professionals trekking to the 19,000-foot summit of Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro in February. So far the climbers have received $47,953 in donations and hope to raise $100,000 total for research to treat pulmonary hypertension. If the climbers can surpass $50,000, drug-maker Actelion has committed to matching it with another $50,000, according to the article.
