Spearheaded by CMHC chairs – George Bakris, MD, Christie Ballantyne, MD, Robert Eckel, MD, and Jay Skyler, MD--this one-day summit will explore the unique challenges faced by clinicians when comprehensively managing patients with cardiometabolic disease. The summit will be kicked off with a series of keynote talks to set the stage about what clinicians need to evaluate and address in their patients, how to synthesize and apply what we have learned to date about both primary and secondary prevention to optimize patient outcomes, and including the patient in clinical decision-making.
The talks will be followed by a unique opportunity to interact with our expert panel - for the first time at CMHC you can submit and present challenging cardiometabolic cases.* During the cases, experts will challenge you and themselves about the optimal management and attempt to "solve" your clinical dilemma. This part of the summit is designed to be highly interactive and give the participants extensive opportunity to participate and highlight challenges and solutions to real-world care for their patients.
Cases to be presented during the live meeting will be selected based on the topic of discussion and clinical relevance from the CMHC Chairs and the Senior Planning Committee.
*Must submit proof of residency, fellowship or student ID
