Council on Hypertension Distinguished Achievement Award

 

The scientific councils’ Distinguished Achievement Award recognizes individuals who have made major contributions to the affairs of the Hypertension Council over a continuing period, and who have made substantial professional contributions to the field represented by the council. The latter could be:

  • Contributions to new knowledge in the field
  • Contributions to teaching and/or clinical care in the field
  • Professional leadership in national or international organizations

The honoree should be a present or past member of a scientific council of the American Heart Association.

The Hypertension Distinguished Achievement Award is presented every three years during the Hypertension Business Meeting and Awards Dinner at the American Heart Association's Hypertension Scientific Sessions.

Suggested nominees for the Distinguished Achievement Award should be presented to the Hypertension Leadership Committee.
