In light of the current circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic we adapted the format of our meeting towards an innovative hybrid way: limited physical presence and virtual participation. Accordingly, despite some unavoidable changes, the program of the meeting continues to keep its own distinct characteristics.

We are really very happy to welcome you again to Athens. The previously postponed 7th Official pre-ESH International Congress Satellite Symposium, entitled “Update on difficult to Control Hypertension and Related Comorbidities” will now be held on 11-12 September, 2020.

Firstly, the short duration of presentations along with the assignment of one panelist per speaker makes the meeting more interactive with the active participation of the leaders of ESH Excellence Centers, representing more than 30 ESH Affiliated European Hypertension Societies.

Secondly, a number of sessions under the general title “Connecting the Dots Be- tween Lifestyle Modifications, Drug Therapy and Renal Denervation in the Management of Hypertension in 2020” will give us the chance to discuss many aspects related to Renal Denervation in light of the recent important trial results.

Last but not least, following the successful experience from last year, a special session dedicated to ESH Research Projects is included in the program with the expectation that this initiative will strengthen the relations between leaders of ESH Excellence Centers.

Participants who are taking care of hypertensive patients (Cardiologists, Internists, Nephrologists, and General Practitioners) after completion of the Symposium will be able to transform into clinical practice the medical knowledge shared in the meeting, leading to better hypertension management.

Having the above in mind, we are really excited to share with you the final scientific program incorporating the knowledge of international experts as a foretaste of the main meeting of the ESH in Glasgow that will take place from 11 to 14 April 2021.

Stay tuned, participate, connect and learn.
