A Symposium entitled "Hypertension – Highlights in 2019" was held on Thursday, March 7th, 2019 at the University of Rijeka Campus. The Symposium was organized by the Institute for Biomedical Sciences in Rijeka of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, in collaboration with Croatian Society of Hypertension, Working Group for Hypertension of the Croatian Cardiac Society, UNIRI Faculty of Medicine, Clinical Hospital Center Rijeka, Society for Nephrology Development "Professor Milovan Radonić" and The Croatian Medical Association, branch office Rijeka.

The participants were greeted by Prof. Daniel Rukavina, M.D., Ph.D., Head of the Department of Biomedical Sciences in Rijeka, and Prof. Bojan Jelaković, M.D., Ph.D., president of the Croatian Society of Hypertension and president of the Organizing Committee. Professors Rukavina and Jelaković agreed that hypertension (high blood pressure) is a serious problem of present day and the leading cause of death worldwide. Prof. Tomislav Rukavina, M.D., Ph.D., Dean of the UNIRI Faculty of Medicine, congratulated Prof. Rukavina on successfully organizing the Symposium.

Professor Snježana Prijić-Samaržija, Ph.D., University of Rijeka Rector, stated: "I must congratulate Prof. Daniel Rukavina and one of the most active Departments of the Academy of Sciences and Arts. Although I am not going to address the topic, it is more than clear that it is an important issue worth of discussion. While it is necessary to discuss it from a scientific perspective, political measures are needed as well. I am particularly pleased with the fact that special attention will be given to hypertension in women, because its treatment is specific, as I was recently told by cardiologist Prof. Alen Ružić, M.D., Ph.D. I want to thank the organizers for choosing our Campus as the venue for this important symposium."
