Every two years, the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (ISSHP) World Congress brings together the top researchers and clinicians in the field of hypertension in pregnancy to share innovations and encourage collaborations in research and clinical practice. As in year's past, the Preeclampsia Foundation participated in the 2012 meeting held July 9-12 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Like the current Olympics which inspire us to "Citius, Altius, Fortius" (Latin for "faster, higher, stronger"), the World Congress inspires participants to demonstrate new found knowledge and skills, and to push each other forward. In the enthusiasm of science-swapping and networking at a meeting like ISSHP, sometimes the larger purpose of our endeavors - saving lives and improving health outcomes of mothers and babies worldwide - may be forgotten by those racing from one intriguing lecture to the next.
That's where the Preeclampsia Foundation comes in. It is a ...
The end of the year always brings with it the joys and blessings (and sometimes challenges) of the holiday season, the nostalgia of closing out another year, and the enthusiasm of looking forward to a new year of anticipated goals. For the Preeclampsia Foundation, as we close out 2010, we close the door on our first decade as THE patient advocacy organization fighting to end the devastating impact of preeclampsia. It has been a very full ten years, beginning with the tumultuous first steps of any start-up organization and moving into the more recent years of growth and success. Last month, we published “Preeclampsia: A Decade of Perspective | Building a Global Call to Action”. This 40-page publication captured our milestones as we celebrated our 10th anniversary, reported on the state of preeclampsia, and suggested a call-to-action for ...
It is fitting that November is the month of thanks-giving. At the Preeclampsia Foundation, we have many people and much to be thankful for, starting with the launch of our new website. If you haven't yet, please visit our new home. Same address - www.preeclampsia.org - but with a complete renovation that allows us to include more content and address our ever-expanding mission into areas such as advocacy, international support, and research communications.
The team including Dan Verakis, Amit Jesani and a host of developers literally spanning the globe, are to be commended for leading us through this complex process. Please bare with us as we will inevitably hit some unforeseen snags in our database or in the website itself. Rest assured, security and your privacy have not nor will ever be compromised. Your trust in us is paramount.
