I have been a member of the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) since 2013. Soon after my enrolment in ISH I joined the New Investigator Network and, sometime later, its Mentorship initiative.
Welcome to the ISH Mentorship Scheme story corner. Here we would like to update members on the progress of the scheme and provide stories of how new investigator members of our community are benefiting from the guidance, support, and importantly friendship of the more experienced members of the ISH. I hope you enjoy these stories and a huge thank you to all contributors to the scheme, especially mentors and mentees.
The ISH New Investigator Network recently created a platform on LinkedIn for young professionals in hypertension research to connect, find researchers in similar fields of interest and to establish exciting new collaborations and research ideas.
