We are thrilled to announce that Hypertension Canada has recognized Ernesto Schiffrin, MD, PhD, Distinguished James McGill Professor, Department of Medicine, for his dedication and commitment to advancing the understanding and treatment of hypertension by honouring him with the 2023 Hypertension Canada Lifetime Achievement Award at the Hypertension Canada Annual Scientific Congress in Banff, AB, on April 4, 2024. 

Dr. Schiffrin expressed his gratitude, stating: “It is very gratifying to receive recognition for one’s contributions, but the recognition is particularly special when it comes from one’s own colleagues, in the case of the Hypertension Canada Lifetime Achievement Award, from my colleagues in the field of hypertension in Canada.” 

We extend our sincere appreciation to Dr. Schiffrin for his outstanding contributions to the field of hypertension and for representing the McGill Department of Medicine with such distinction. His dedication and passion for improving cardiovascular health are truly commendable. 

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Schiffrin on this well-deserved honour.
