For decades, research statistics have illustrated a troubling trend within modern healthcare: by and large individuals throughout the globe die from cardiovascular and metabolic diseases more than any other cause. Further still, a sizable body of research has demonstrated that marginalized racial and ethnic populations confront greater barriers to diagnosis and care, receive lower quality treatment, and experience worse health outcomes 1-- with CVD accounting for nearly 1/3 of the disparity in potential life-years lost between marginalized groups and white counterparts 2. This is a public health crisis-- and one which must be dealt with head on by medical professionals of all backgrounds from across the globe.
Now, for the first time in its 15-year span, CMHC will deliver a historic cardiometabolic educational event entirely online as the 2020 Annual CMHC Live Online: Evolving Paradigms in Cardiometabolic Care: Disparities & Advancements. Led by leading clinical experts this conference will present the latest information and updates across the cardiometabolic healthcare industry as well as provide a deep dive into the intersection of social determinants of health and cardiometabolic care. Through an advanced learning structure, this offering will help you build a practical strategy through which to both keep your practice up to date and effectively navigate the challenges of inequity in healthcare.
With sessions streamed live, participants will be able to directly engage with faculty members through an interactive online format. Planned and developed in direct response to the real-world clinical needs of active practitioners and patients, the 15th Annual Cardiometabolic Health Congress will deliver the most valuable scientific knowledge and late-breaking updates through an clinically equitable lens and delivered on an easy-to-navigate online format.
