The Hypertension Council fosters excellence in hypertension research and education in support of the AHA’s mission. Hypertension remains a world-wide public-health challenge and is a leading cause of stroke, heart disease, and the progression of chronic kidney disease. The annual Hypertension Scientific Sessions showcases timely research.

The KCVD Council works to reduce cardiovascular-related disability and death through research, communication, advocacy, and education about the kidney. Kidney disease is a major cause and consequence of cardiovascular disease. Chronic renal insufficiency can contribute to development of hypertension, vascular disease, atherosclerosis and other morbidity and mortality risk factors.
