Sponsored by the Council on Hypertension
Nominations for the Lewis K. Dahl Memorial Lecture are being accepted February 19–May 15, 2020 at 6 p.m. (Central time)

The Lewis K. Dahl Memorial Lecture was established in 1988 by the Council for High Blood Pressure Research (now known as the Council on Hypertension) in honor of Dr. Dahl’s pioneering work on the relations between salt, the kidney and hypertension, and for establishing a major genetically based experimental model of hypertension (Dahl salt-sensitive rat).
