12th Annual Cardiometabolic Health Congress
October 4-7, 2017
The CMHC is designed for advanced level clinicians responsible for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cardiometabolic risk including cardiologists, endocrinologists, diabetologists, lipidologists, pharmacists, primary care clinicians (PCPs), nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), and other allied health professionals.
Statement of Need/Program Overview
The ever-increasing presence of cardiometabolic risk continues to be a major challenge for health care providers in the United States. Current estimates suggest approximately 23% - 38% of all U.S. adults have metabolic syndrome, a constellation of cardiometabolic risk factors, including excessive abdominal fat, insulin resistance, inflammation, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Patients with multiple cardiometabolic risk factors have twice the likelihood of developing and dying from cardiovascular disease and more than seven times the risk of developing diabetes compared to those with no cardiometabolic risk factors. Cardiovascular disease already affects approximately 83.6 million U.S. adults (> 1 in 3) and is the leading cause of U.S. deaths; however, this CVD burden can be expected to increase.
This sampling of sobering statistics points to a rapidly growing epidemic of cardiovascular and metabolic disease and calls to the forefront the need for medical education focused on all aspects of cardiometabolic risk. The CMHC presents an especially valuable venue for this educational outreach with sessions fostering a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to care.
The 2017 Cardiometabolic Health Congress will translate the latest cutting edge medical research into practical, clinical strategies for preventing, delaying, and managing cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. The goal is to provide the medical community with evidence based interventions to improve health outcomes and quality of life for the growing numbers of patients at increased cardiometabolic risk.
