As the growing international public health crisis of cardiovascular disease continues to plague the globe, it is imperative for clinicians to equip themselves with hands-on therapeutic practices & protocols that can be directly applied to patients. With recent statistics indicating that over one-third of the population has at least one cardiometabolic risk factor?including dyslipidemia, CVD, hypertension, diabetes, and/or obesity?the Cardiometabolic Health Congress serves as the go-to forum for health practitioners to stay educated and clinically current.

Now in its 14th year, CMHC is the largest, US-based, multidisciplinary conference that is solely focused on the management of cardiometabolic risk, and the prevention of cardiovascular and metabolic disease. Through a thorough and comprehensive 3 ½ days planned and led by the country's top academic experts, researchers, and thought leaders, this event allows today's busy healthcare professionals a uniquely exclusive opportunity to learn, internalize, and integrate real-world solutions into their toolboxes: and ultimately, their clinical practices & patient care.

The 2019 CMHC will translate the latest cutting-edge medical research into practical, clinical strategies for preventing, delaying, diagnosing, treating, and managing cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. The goal is to provide the medical community with evidence-based interventions that they can apply immediately in clinical practice to improve health outcomes and quality of life for the growing numbers of patients at increased cardiometabolic risk.

Session Topics Include:
• Cardiometabolic Technology Summit
• Prevention of Metabolic Syndrome
• Gut Microbiota: How does it affect Cardiometabolic Health?
• Role of Genetic Risk Scores for the Prevention of Cardiometabolic Disease
• SGLT2 Inhibitors and Renal Preservation
• Lifestyle Approaches to Weight Reduction - Challenges Before Us
• Biomarkers in CVD - Global CVD Risk Assessment

Educational Objectives:
• 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 biomarkers, imaging, genetic risk assessment, 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 to optimize outcomes.
• Summarize recent evidence for emerging therapies in order to stay current with the most recent updates in the cardiometabolic field.
• Employ strategies that promote patient-centered care, including patient communication and education, in order to optimize adherence to treatment regimens.
• Recognize the role of real-world evidence, data science, and technology in aiding and improving care for cardiometabolic diseases.
