ASH is committed to the promotion, encouragement, development, advancement and exchange of scientific information in all aspects of research, diagnosis and treatment of hypertension, and related cardiovascular diseases.  The specific focus of the Society is to translate current research findings on hypertension into effective treatment strategies, in order to better address the needs of hypertension patients.

In addition to providing a forum for scientific exchange in hypertension especially at its Annual Scientific Meeting, the society encourages the participation of the broadest possible array of scientific disciplines in its educational programs, advocates for hypertension clinical investigation trials and promotes research among its members and young investigators, especially through its annual scientific awards.
