Canada’s largest national scientific and educational conference of its kind, the Canadian Hypertension Congress, is back for its 8th year September 25 to 28, 2019, in Edmonton.
Re-designed to incorporate today’s needs and expectations of scientists, researchers, and clinicians, we are delighted to invite you to be part of its success!
Over three days, through presentations, debates, and discussions, we showcase cutting-edge research abstracts, address knowledge gaps head-on, and inspire innovation through open exchange to drive improved health outcomes for people living with hypertension, and more. Responding to the primary care community’s needs, this year’s theme is “A Whole-Patient Approach”. Our Scientific and Clinical Tracks addresses the most-requested topics in hypertension and adjacent conditions for whole-patient care:
- Cardiovascular Disease (Stroke, Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation)
- Thresholds & Targets
- Kidney Disease
This Congress brings together leading minds across disciplines and specialties: more than 500 of Canada’s leading hypertension scientists and researchers, specialists, physicians, pharmacists, nurses, dietitians, health experts, and public health officials. Concurrently, our second Young Investigator Forum will provide trainees with knowledge and skills development support to best equip them for a bright future in hypertension.
We have added a Partners Program this year for $125.00. Partners are welcome to enjoy the Keynote Speaker and President’s Reception on Wednesday evening. As well, a continental breakfast will be offered in our Hospitality Suite from 7:30 – 10:30 am on Thursday and Friday. Information on local tours, shopping etc. will be provided.
