On behalf of Hypertension Canada, we are pleased to invite you to the 6th annual Canadian Hypertension Congress, this October 19th to the 22nd, hosted at the Sheraton Montreal Airport Hotel.
The Canadian Hypertension Congress (CHC) gathers key opinion leaders and faculty and showcases the latest research in hypertension. It is the only congress designed specifically to enable the development and exchange of evidence-based information on the pathobiology and management of hypertension.
The 2016 CHC provides exciting opportunities for you to join the greatest minds in hypertension, connect with colleagues old and new, and to showcase your research. Mark your calendars now – abstract submissions are open, and registration begins in May. Sign up for our eINFO newsletter to stay abreast of key dates and the release of our preliminary programme.
New this year is the Young Investigator’s Forum, taking place Saturday October 22nd. Hypertension Canada, the Canadian Society of Atherosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology and the Canadian Vascular Network are collaborating to continue the CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health’s tradition of providing early career support to young researchers. The 2016 YI Forum will provide new investigators and trainees with an opportunity to showcase their health research, learn about career development, develop leadership skills, share ideas and network with mentors and peers.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 CHC in exciting Montreal!
