About the Award: 
The Donald Seldin Lecture was created to honor Dr. Donald Seldin, a pioneer and leader in the field of cardiovascular disease as it relates to kidney failure. This lecture continues to raise the awareness of AHA attendees about the rising epidemic of cardiovascular disease and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease.  

HBPR Harriet Dustan Award and Lecture

About the Award:
The Harriet Dustan Award is designed to recognize women investigators who have made outstanding contributions in the field of hypertension. This award was established to honor the memory of Dr. Harriet Dustan, an outstanding clinician and investigator who was a tireless worker on behalf of the Council for High Blood Pressure Research and the American Heart Association for over 50 years. In addition to her numerous career achievements, Dr. Dustan served the AHA as President, chaired its Ethics and Research Committees, and was the founding Editor-in-Chief of Hypertension.

Distinguished Achievement Awards

The Scientific Councils’ Distinguished Achievement Award recognizes individuals who have made major contributions to the affairs of a Scientific Council over a continuing period of time, and who have made substantial professional contributions to the field represented by the Council. These contributions may consist of Contributions to new knowledge in the field; Contributions to teaching and/or clinical care in the field; or Professional leadership in national or international organizations.

Related Statistics

  • Data from the FHS/NHLBI indicate that hypertension is associated with shorter overall life expectancy, shorter life expectancy free of CVD, and more years lived with CVD.
  • Nearly 26 million people (13%) in the United States have CKD, and most are undiagnosed.  Another 20 million are at increased risk for CKD.
  • The prevalence of hypertension in blacks in the United States is among the highest in the world, and it is increasing.
