HBPR09_RhianTouyzOn behalf of the American Heart Association Council on Hypertension, in association with the Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease, we cordially invite you to attend the 63rd High Blood Pressure Research (HBPR) Conference Sept. 23-26, 2009, at the InterContinental Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Chicago.

This conference, focusing on recent advances in hypertension research, is considered one of the most important medical meetings on this subject in the world. The meeting, preceded by a one-day workshop, includes oral and poster presentations selected from abstracts submitted by clinical and basic researchers and draws an international audience of more than 700 attendees. The conference will provide an educational program for physicians and research investigators that will enhance their knowledge, advance their skills, and apprise them of the latest developments in research pertaining to hypertension and its relationship to stroke, cardiac disease, kidney function/renal diseases, obesity and genetics. We sincerely hope that you will make plans to join us this fall in Chicago for the 63rd HBPR Conference.
