This year’s Pushing Boundaries in Cardiometabolic Health: Challenges and Controversies will feature four days of new late-breaking research, FDA updates, clinical insights, and more all delivered through an actionable lens.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Discuss the interrelationships among cardiometabolic risk factors and their impact on the development of cardiometabolic diseases, including diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, kidney disease, and cardiovascular disease
- Interpret the latest evidence and guidelines for the prevention, screening, and treatment of the complex patient with cardiometabolic risk or cardiometabolic disease
- Outline strategies aimed at timely screening and prevention of cardiometabolic disease, including assessment of risk factors and biomarkers, and lifestyle modifications
- Develop individualized treatment regimens for patients with cardiometabolic disease based on the efficacy and safety of current and new pharmacotherapies, patient comorbidities and preferences in order to optimize outcomes
- Summarize recent evidence for emerging therapies in order to stay current with the most recent updates in the cardiometabolic field
- Recognize the impacts of rare cardiometabolic diseases, including rare lipid, cardiovascular, diabetes, and obesity disorders, as well as potential implications for management
