Hypertension in Africa Research Team - World Hypertension Day Initiatives

From South Africa, the Hypertension in Africa Research Team (HART) supported World Hypertension Day on the Potchefstroom campus of the North-West University!! It was a day filled with fun and excitement!

This initiative was in conjunction with the Center of Excellence of Nutrition and the South African National Blood Service. This event was inspired by the New Investigators Network and supported by the Institutional office of the North-West University. HART is inspired to promote awareness of hypertension and contribute to international collaborative research to understand and potentially control the onset and development of hypertension, especially in African populations from South Africa.
