Each day, 2,200 Americans die of cardiovascular disease; every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke or heart attack. Cardiovascular disease continues to exact an enormous toll on the economy, costing the country $555 billion in both medical costs and lost productivity. Estimates indicate that this number will rise to $818 million by 2030.
In order to directly combat the escalating epidemic of cardiovascular disease, CMHC’s largest event—continuing into its 14th year—will address all aspects of cardiometabolic health. Expert lecturers and clinicians will cover the most current clinical updates, in addition to cutting-edge protocols and practices surrounding hypertension, diabetes, lifestyle management, and nutritional strategies.
The Cardiometabolic Health Congress is the largest multidisciplinary conference focused solely on the management of cardiometabolic risk and the prevention of cardiovascular and metabolic disease. The 3 ½- day event offers today's busy healthcare professionals the opportunity to further clinical education, network with likeminded healthcare professionals, and receive education that can immediately be integrated into practice.
