Coinciding with the World Children´s Day which will be celebrated on the 20th November, the third European HyperChildNET week has been launched. Key topics related to hypertension in children and adolescents will be addressed.
A great variety of scientific dissemination and awareness actions are planned from 20 to 27 November, 2023. The European HyperChildNET week has a double objective, on the one hand, to raise awareness about the importance to control blood pressure in children and adolescents among health care professionals and, on the other hand, to disseminate healthy practices for the general population, with a particular focus on children, adolescents as well as their families and educators.
During the HyperChildNET week, the researchers of this international network composed by 26 countries will be tipped towards health care professionals of the field and also towards families and educators to disseminate the objectives of the network, and all of this, with the objective to improve the children and adolescents’ quality of life.
In special, we have prepared for this European Week:
