The Sixth Annual PRE-EMPT Meeting was held in London, United Kingdom from October 2-6th, 2017 at the Sheraton Heathrow West Drayton Hotel. It was the largest meeting to date with over 162 delegates attending from all around the world. The meeting was combined with the CoLab and CAP Steering Committee Meetings and updates from all five objectives of PRE-EMPT were shared. It was a very exciting annual meeting as preliminary findings of the CAP, Gynuity Oral Antihypertensives Trial and CLIP Trials were revealed for the very first time.
