Emerging Authors Program for Global Cardiovascular Disease Research

by Public Health Update


The Emerging Authors Program for Global Cardiovascular Disease Research is an opportunity for early and midcareer public health trainees and practitioners from low- and middle-income countries to receive scientific writing and publication mentorship from global cardiovascular disease experts. The program – a collaboration of the Lancet Commission on Hypertension Group, Resolve to Save Lives, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Hypertension League – aims to expand the evidence base on reduction strategies for cardiovascular disease and associated risk factors while increasing opportunities for investigators from lowand middle-income countries to contribute to the scientific literature.
