The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) have partnered to deliver a unique 2-day meeting that will explore the connections between cardiometabolic risk and the spectrum of integrative and evidence-based interventions to improve cardiometabolic health.

Leveraging the strengths of A4M, a leader in integrative health & wellness, and CMHC, a leader in comprehensive cardiometabolic disease education, this meeting will combine the forward-thinking of integrative medicine approaches with cutting edge advances and clinical trials. Utilizing thought-provoking and interactive discussions, multidisciplinary experts will cover advances in lifestyle, nutrition, genetics, and pharmacotherapy to prevent and address obesity, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, and kidney disease.

The meeting will be chaired by renowned experts George Bakris, MD and Mark Houston, MD, and will provide ample opportunity for interacting with thought leaders, with the ultimate goal of helping you walk away with practical and comprehensive strategies to improve patient care.
