ASH Strategic Plan

The ASH strategic plan-adopted in February 2014-is intended to extend its focus toward a more patient-centered orientation while maintaining its critical role as a scientific and educational forum for clinical investigations in hypertension and related cardio-renal diseases.

The ASH strategic plan will alter some of its focus toward a more patient-centered
orientation but will maintain its excellent programs in translating research into education
for our professional members.

“ASH is a growing and diverse organization that works to improve hypertension
outcomes throughout the United States.”

“To improve hypertension related outcomes through translation of research, education,
and promotion of new and effective patient-centered population health strategies.”
