In the article by Whelton et al, “Sodium, Blood Pressure, and Cardiovascular Disease: Further Evidence Supporting the American Heart Association Sodium Reduction Recommendations,” which published ahead of print on November 2, 2012, and appeared in the December 11, 2012, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2012;126:2880-2889), a correction was needed.
On page 2887, in the Writing Group Disclosure Table, Dr. Anderson’s research grant read, “PI of NHLBI-funded grant on sodium (Effects of Sodium on CVD)† and PI of McCormick Science Institute grant on sodium (Adherence to Sodium Recommendation)†”. It has been changed to read, “National Heart Lung and Blood Institute funded study – “The effects of sodium and potassium intake on cardiovascular disease”†; PI of McCormick Science Institute grant on sodium (Adherence to Sodium Recommendation)*”.
This correction has been made to the print version and to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/126/24/2880.
