The Marvin Moser Clinical Hypertension Award recognizes a qualified mid-career or senior Hypertension Clinician for their dedication to the treatment and care of hypertensive patients. The award was established to honor the memory of Dr. Marvin Moser, one of the leading figures in the field of hypertension, and the inaugural Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Clinical Hypertension.
After completing his cardiology fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, Dr. Moser served as the Chief of Vascular Disease and Hypertension at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. In the 1950’s when hypertension was only recognized in its most malignant form and debilitating procedures were the mainstay of treatment given the lack of antihypertensive medications, Dr. Moser was one of the first to suggest that hypertension had far greater prognostic importance than just its immediate effects on major life-threatening events. He was a pioneer in the exploration of drug therapy for reducing blood pressure thus making the treatment of hypertension possible. Dr. Moser concluded his career as a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine.
