Welcome Message from the ISSHP 2014 New Orleans Local Organizers
We have the privilege of inviting you to the next ISSHP World Congress in 2014 in New Orleans, LA, USA. With the assistance of our Local Organizing Committee and International Advisory Board, we plan an outstanding scientific and clinical meeting for all those interested in preeclampsia / hypertension and the care of affected women. We particularly encourage young investigators to present their work. The future for preeclampsia brings new understanding of the mechanisms of the disease which will soon translate to exciting new methods of surveillance and therapies. Further, as it becomes clear that women who had preeclampsia have a higher risk of adverse cardiovascular outcomes. Additional research and sharing of ideas in this new area is important to understand and plan for long term management.
Come to New Orleans in 2014. We plan a stimulating scientific meeting in a city of great charm and European influence. In addition to an outstanding meeting, expect to hear world-renowned jazz, sample extraordinary cuisine, and absorb the year round celebration of Mardi Gras.
See you in New Orleans!

I am very pleased that the next World Congress on Hypertension in Pregnancy will take place in New Orleans October 2014. The organising committee has put together a very interesting meeting which combines the most up to date clinical and scientific research in the field.
I am also very pleased that we are meeting together with the International Society of Obstetric Medicine including a conjoint day as part of both Societies’ conferences. This provides us an ideal opportunity for two related and important groups to work together.
New Orleans is a unique city where different traditions and culture mix. We all acknowledge the great efforts made to restore New Orleans’ historical splendor and will be pleased to honor the city with a large participation and a high quality program that we hope will lead to large submissions to “Pregnancy Hypertension”, the Society’s journal.
This is a wonderful opportunity to gather with international colleagues and share science and friendship. We wish to make this Congress a memorable event.
