The Digital Health Awards recognize excellence in several categories of digital health delivery, and this year CMHC has been awarded the highest honor for its webinar on racial disparities in the cardiometabolic health industry.
Boca Raton, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) was selected as a winner in the 24th annual Digital Health Awards® program. This competition — held each spring and fall — recognizes the world’s best digital health resources. Looming Cardiometabolic Crisis: A Conversation about Race received a Gold Award in the Web-Based Digital Health Webinar category. It was chosen from nearly 700 entries judged by a panel of distinguished experts in digital health media.
The winning webinar, led by Keith C. Ferdinand, MD, posed that, despite therapeutic advances, the cardiometabolic disease burden remains disproportionally high in patients from racial and ethnic populations. Dr. Ferdinand and a panel of key opinion leaders addressed the current disparities in cardiometabolic health and strategies to better help close these gaps in the pursuit of health equity.
“We were delighted to participate in the 24th annual Digital Health Awards competition and are honored to be selected as a winner,” said Amanda Jamrogiewicz, CMHC General Manager. “It is encouraging to see that others agree that this was a phenomenal discussion, and it was made possible by our esteemed faculty who expertly tackled this important and complex issue.”
The experts at CMHC plan to have more conversations on this topic at the 17th Annual Meeting in Boston Oct 19-22, 2022. Visit https://www.cardiometabolichealth.org/17th-annual-cmhc-2022/ to learn more and register.
