The 8th annual Hypertension Summer School will provide a broad overview of the major systems that contribute to blood pressure control and the development of hypertension with emphasis on basic mechanisms, clinical relevance and epidemiology, and current and emerging therapies for the treatment of hypertension.
Morning sessions will be devoted to fundamental mechanisms of hypertension and the clinical relevance of each system. Afternoon sessions will cover therapeutic interventions using an interactive case based approach, a “hands on” session devoted to the use of medical technology, and a career development session for trainees.
Who Should Attend?
This course is open to all, but trainees — graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and clinical fellows — who wish to pursue careers in basic or clinical hypertension research are encouraged to attend. The Hypertension Summer School will be valuable for fellows studying hypertension, nephrology, cardiology, endocrinology, general medicine, and clinical pharmacology.

Debate: Is population-wide salt restriction an appropriate strategy to control hypertension?
Sponsored by the American Heart Association’s Council for High Blood Pressure Research and Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease this program is designed to introduce new and current investigators to the ongoing need for research and discovery into hypertension.
