ISH new investigator video montage - a call to members to assist

Posted on 03/05/2013

In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of day-to-day choices in the maintenance of a healthy blood pressure the ISH New Investigator Network is compiling a short video message with various members describing what efforts they take to control their blood pressure. The video is expected to be incorporated into the ISH content to be accessed by membership and the public alike. In order for this video to be successful WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Dear ISH Member,

In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of day-to-day choices in the maintenance of a healthy blood pressure the ISH New Investigator Network is compiling a short video message with various members describing what efforts they take to control their blood pressure. The video is expected to be incorporated into the ISH content to be accessed by membership and the public alike.  In order for this video to be successful WE NEED YOUR HELP.

All willing members are asked to compile a short (10-20 second) video or audio clip describing their efforts. Video does not necessarily need to be of high quality; even cell phone video will be sufficient.

Example of clips include "I run three times a week", "I train in karate", "I eat a low sodium diet" etc... a video is preferrable however audio paired with an action shot (still photo), or a short text message will also be useful.   

It is particularly desirable to have scientific leaders and recognizable faces contribute.

It is hoped that the video may be compiled for world hypertension day (May 17th, 2013).  If you are willing to contribute please send your videos, clips, or text to secretariat@ish-world.com as soon as possible.
