Charting our future together: NHLBI’s Strategic Visioning Process

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) is launching its Strategic Visioning Initiative. The success of this Initiative will greatly depend upon your participation.  For this reason, you are invited to visit http://strategicvisioning.nhlbi.nih.gov today and engage.

For decades, NHLBI research has been stimulating groundbreaking scientific discoveries and translating them into better prevention and treatment interventions, enhanced health outcomes, and dramatic contributions in longevity and quality of life around the world. In order for heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) research to continue to contribute toward enhancing lives and improving public health, the Institute has launched this Strategic Visioning process. This initiative will help us identify our scientific priorities, ensure our NHLBI community and partners have a shared understanding of our future direction, and shape how the Institute makes strategic research investments to achieve scientific breakthroughs in the decade to come. The NHLBI seeks to engage everyone with an interest in HLBS research, from health professionals and researchers to patients and the general public, and collect the most innovative and pressing ideas. 

The best ideas are a result of our collective brainpower; please share your ideas in order to help shape the future of HLBS research. Visit the NHLBI Strategic Visioning website at http://strategicvisioning.nhlbi.nih.gov to learn more about Strategic Visioning and how you can to get involved.
