Why You Should Attend Hypertension Scientific Sessions

For 2017, the American Heart Association’s Council on Hypertension, our Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease, and the American Society of Hypertension are combining efforts to bring you one of the most important medical meetings on this subject in the world. This conference will include oral and poster presentations selected from abstracts submitted by clinical and basic researchers, followed by discussions led by leading authorities.

With experts in the fields of hypertension and its relationship to cardiac and kidney disease, stroke, obesity, and genetics, attendees will have the opportunity to connect with cross-disciplinary researchers and clinicians from around the world.

This meeting includes several interactive sessions specifically designed to benefit trainees and early career investigators, including a trainee poster session to highlight innovative research and how-to sessions that provide in-depth information about a range of topics related to the study of hypertension. New this year to add a focus on clinicians, we have added the Primary Care and Clinical Practice Clinical Science Tracks.
