Get actively involved in the ISH

A message from the President-Elect of the International Society of Hypertension

In September 2024, I will take on the role of ISH President. I am looking forward to working closely with the ISH Council and our committee members to further expand the activities and impact of the ISH at a global level.

At ISH we have several active committees and boards, a lot of big ongoing projects, and plans for initiating new exciting ones. I want to encourage members and friends within our ISH community to get actively involved in the work of the ISH. There are several opportunities to volunteer in a range of roles and committees – all listed below.

I want to hear from members and friends who are willing to commit time and energy to these roles.

If you think you can play a role – get in touch by completing our expression of interest form. Deadline: 31 July 2024.

If you are not yet a member of the ISH, and want to get involved, first apply for ISH membership and then submit an expression of interest form.

Appointments to ISH committees and groups will be made after the 2024 ISH Scientific Meeting in Cartagena, Colombia (19-22 September)
