In this article, Freis reviewed the great changes that had occurred since 1969 in medical approaches to hypertension. He credited the changes to the Framingham Heart Study and the VA Cooperative Study, along with public hypertension awareness campaigns and the availability of new antihypertensive drugs. There was good cause, he concluded, to be optimistic about the prospects of controlling hypertension and reducing its public health consequences.
