The Nursing, Health Science and Allied Health Council was well represented again at this year's ISHLT Meeting in San Diego. The sessions covered patient reported outcomes, overcoming adherence and frailty, as well as psychosocial outcomes in transplant and MCS. There were also several hot topics including pregnancy in complex patients and marijuana use in transplant. The poster session included almost two dozen submissions from the NHSAH Council looking at everything from frailty, nutrition and quality of life screening, to caregiver gender burden and how psychosocial stressors affect the multidisciplinary team. San Diego had plenty to offer attendees in their spare time including harbor cruises, strolls along the water and spectacular sunsets - the margaritas and tacos weren't half bad either. Next year's meeting in Nice is sure to be a crowd pleaser, don't forget to get those symposium and plenary proposals in by the June 1st deadline. As a final plug, please reach out to any of the operating board members if you are looking to be more involved in the council. All of our contact information can be found on the council web page: http://ishlt.org/councils/nursing.asp.
