American Society of Hypertension

Hypertension--the most prevalent cause of stroke and kidney failure-- is part of a bigger disease conglomerate almost always accompanied by obesity, diabetes, kidney disease or many other co-existing problems involving lifestyle and/or genetics. ASH remains committed to:

*advancing the science, prevention and treatment of high blood pressure and its cardio-renal consequences--including obesity and diabetes--especially resistant and complex hypertension

*eliminating hypertension and its consequences through
a renewed and vigorous focus on translational research leading to effective treatment strategies for patients.
