Series II. Publications from Committees, Groups, and Panels, 1979-1986

Scope and Content Notes:

Shapiro participated in multiple committees, panels, and group research studies related to hypertension. Most of the material in this series focuses on the links between stress and hypertension, stress and illness, and non-pharmacologic treatments for hypertension. Also included are three publications that resulted from the Hypertension Detection and Follow-up Program: a groundbreaking long-term study that was conducted at the University of Pittsburgh's medical school; it was one of the first to broadly compare instances and treatment of hypertension across gender and racial categories. The bulk of material in this series consists of copies of the published articles and transcripts of discussions, however some related correspondence and draft materials are present. Documents are arranged chronologically.
