With great satisfaction I am looking forward to welcome you in the “Land of Happiness” in August 13-16, 2014.
Salvador – Bahia, means to be in contact with colors, tastes, sounds and very pleasant spiritualities, together with the people who was born to welcome visitors with warmth.
For those who already experienced Salvador, will know exactly what I am talking about. For those who have never been in Salvador, will know when returning back.
This unique and strong culture owes it’s origins from the african, portuguese and indian backgrounds, which has melted without losing their identities.
Sponsored by the Brazilian Society of Hypertension, this opportunity will offer special scientific updating, in conjunction with the Interamerican Society of Hypertension, bringing to these scientific events, professors and expertises from various áreas such as: basic sciences, epidemiology and clinical experiences which are so important on our day to day practice.
I am certain that your presence will generate important scientific, social and cultural interaction.
See you soon!
“Axé” to all!
Lucélia Cunha Magalhães

I wish to extend to all of you a most cordial invitation to participate in the coming joint meeting of the Brazilian Society of Hypertension and the Inter American Society of Hypertension to be held in Salvador, the State of Bahia, Brazil, August 13-16, 2014. This event aims to bring together the best clinical and basic science efforts of physicians and scientist working in the fields of hypertension, vascular disease, heart and renal failure, and diabetes. The joint meeting of these two leading societies will provide a forum for presenting new advances in basic, clinical, and population sciences related to hypertension and target organ injury, as well as for educating health care professionals on the new hypertension guidelines and the most effective therapies.
The 2014 meeting will offer an outstanding scientific program by including satellite symposium, state-of-the-art lectures, workshops, and original communication. The organizing committee plans to offer multiple activities for new clinical and basic science investigators including travel awards for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and medical residents. There will also be exhibitions of new pharmaceutical and research products at the meeting. As in the past, we expect that the XXth Biennial Meeting of the Inter American Society of Hypertension, this time jointly with the XXIIth Annual Scientific Meeting of the Brazilian Society of Hypertension will be co-sponsored by multiple international organizations including the Council for High Blood Pressure Research of the AHA, the International Society of Hypertension, the Latin America Society of Hypertension, and the World Hypertensive League.
While more details regarding travel awards, program outline, registration windows, and abstract submission will be forthcoming in the near future, I would encourage all of you to pencil in your calendar the dates outlined in the insert and start planning to join us in the beautiful city of Salvador, Brazil. Salvador, also known as Brazil’s capital of happiness, is today the third most populous Brazilian city. Since its origin as the first colonial capital of Brazil, Salvador is a gem of the old Portuguese architecture and notable in Brazil for its cuisine, music, and wealth.
