Advancing Education in Cardiometabolic Disease
The Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) is more than an annual conference or regional meeting. CMHC provides a single point of access for busy practitioners to stay abreast of evolving science, clinical practice advances and continuing education in cardiometabolic disease prevention and management. CMHC provides a complete platform of education spanning live and digital communications that extends the energy and experience of our national and regional conferences throughout the year and to a wider audience of frontline clinicians with an interest in cardiometabolic health.

With more than one-third of the population having at least one cardiometabolic risk factor - dyslipidemia, CHD, hypertension, diabetes and/or obesity - CMHC provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for busy clinicians to catch up on the latest developments in these overlapping areas of cardiometabolic health. With no board certification, graduate or medical school training formally recognized in Cardiometabolic Science and Medicine, and continuing education that is delivered in specialty specific silos, CMHC provides an integrated and comprehensive solution.
CMHC has a decade of history bringing together experts across the spectrum of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease to share ideas and foster collaborations. The curriculum is at the cutting edge of science, translating the latest research to practical approaches for the entire multidisciplinary health care team. CMHC offers live conferences and online educational programs.
Cardiometabolic Health Congress launched in October 2006 in Boston and has grown to be the largest US-based, multidisciplinary conference addressing cardiometabolic disease prevention and its interdependencies through an integrated approach to education. CMHC Boston is held each October and attended by 1,300+ multidisciplinary health professionals seeking real-world solutions to integrate directly into their clinical practices. In 2015, CMHC expanded to include the CMHC Regional Conference Series: Focus on Frontline Education held in cities across the US, as well as CMHC West: Advancing Cardiometabolic Health from East to West.
About the CMHC Education Resource Center
The Cardiometabolic Health Congress Education Resource Center is accessed through its website cardiometabolichealth.org. The website is responsive, enhanced for an optimal mobile experience, and features a new learning management system, allowing users to log in and track their programs. The Education Resource Center is made available to the CMHC extended database, which reaches 30,000+ CMHC subscribers and past meeting attendees. Links from CMHC media and association partners provide additional exposure to educational programming provided on the site. The CMHC Education Resource Center is a leading destination for continuous professional development for clinicians who are seeking to improve their day-to-day clinical practice and earn CME credits in cardiometabolic disease management.
Enduring activities on cardiometabolichealth.org extend the reach of the high-quality content presented annually at the live Congress and provides valuable, focused cardiometabolic online CME activities to our subscribers. The site includes multiple learning formats, such as virtual webcasts, virtual expert insights, and digital monographs to accommodate our subscribers’ learning preferences and practice needs. The educational areas include management of SPAF, current strategies for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of T2DM, atherosclerosis, hypertension, heart failure, dyslipidemia, obesity, thrombosis, acute coronary syndrome, insulin resistance, and related comorbidities.
As our biggest request has been for case-based learning, the Education Resource Center is expanding further with the addition of the CMHC “Virtual Waiting Room.” The Virtual Waiting Room consists of cardiometabolic patients and feature cases for specialists and primary care physicians involved in the management of diabetes, CVD, obesity, hypertension, heart failure, and other cardiometabolic risk factors. The case presentations are interactive, with multiple-choice questions that take the courses of diagnosis and treatment to their conclusion. As learners ask case questions along the way, they will receive feedback based on expert opinion and evidence-based literature.
