Lewis K. Dahl Memorial Lecture

Updated:May 19,2015
Sponsored by the Council on Hypertension

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).

The Dahl Lecture is presented each year at the Hypertension Scientific Sessions by a distinguished honoree from the field of hypertension.  The Council on Hypertension is accepting nominations for presenters for the Dahl Lecture January 12-May 26, 2015.
