18th Annual World Congress Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease (WCIRDC) is organized by The Metabolic Institute of America (TMIOA). The onsite conference will be held from Dec 03 - 05, 2020 at Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City, Los Angeles, California, United States of America. Who can attend? This educational conference is intended for cardiologists, endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, internists, diabetologists, OBGYNs, pediatricians, dietitians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and any other health care professionals who are interested in improving patients outcome, focusing on insulin resistance, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, related Kidney and fatty liver morbidity, and potential prevention and management impact on health and society. Program Description: The World Congress on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease (WCIRDC), now in its 18th year, is a unique and exciting multidisciplinary CME program. The Congress is the premiere global meeting dedicated to diabetes, obesity, lipids, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and energy balance, linking basic research to clinical practice in pursuit of our theme: Exploring New Frontiers in Metabolism — Tomorrow’s Clinical Science Today. For nearly two decades, WCIRDC has brought researchers, physicians- clinicians and other healthcare professionals together for a distinctive international program that bridges the latest developments from bench-to-bedside. “I heard it first at the Congress” is a frequent remark from the audience over the years, many of whom attend year after year. Researchers present their latest data and findings on everything from biomarkers to new physiological insights to new ideas for therapies. WCIRDC offers attendees a unique experience to interact in an intimate setting with the distinguished global faculty for a collaborative experience that explores the newest understanding of metabolic diseases and the development of future therapeutic modalities. Since Dr. Gerald Reaven’s pioneering work crystallized the relationship between insulin resistance (IR), diabetes, and CVD, the Congress’ focus has expanded to cover fat cells, lipids, the kidney, fatty liver, the brain, bone and energy metabolism, inflammation, aging, diet, cancer and more. The Congress addresses dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and hypercoagulation as well as new pharmaceutical interventions such as incretins, SGLT2i’s, PCSK9i’s and EPA omega 3 to name a few. The goal is to understand the state-of-the-art pathophysiology new medical interventions and to develop appropriate comprehensive clinical management strategies. For primary care clinicians, Congress will feature a series of workshops and “meet the expert” panels addressing the clinical prevention and management of kidney disease, diabetes, obesity, lipids, the high risk CVD, CHF patient and more. To make basic and clinical research topics relevant to clinical medicine, following the presentations, including basic research, there will be commentaries on clinical implications to practice by recognized global experts. The Congress’ intimate setting promotes personal contacts between participants and the distinguished global faculty wherein everyone learns from the free flow of questions, personal observations and face to face informal discussions. The Congress attracts state-of-the-art abstracts by young, upcoming and recognized leaders from around the globe. These abstracts will be published in Metabolism: Clinical and Experimental, a peer-reviewed journal published twelve times a year with over 40,000 unique monthly viewers worldwide that is in the top 10% of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism journals (https://www.metabolismjournal.com/). Further, articles about the meeting are published in several medical journals and online medical news sources such as Diabetes Care, Metabolism, The Journal of Diabetes, Endocrine Practice, Diabetes and Vascular Disease Research, Endocrinology Today, Cardiology Today, Endocrine Web, Clinical Endocrinology News, Diabetes in Control, among others. Program Objectives: The program is intended to assess both the clinical and basic science aspects of diabetes, obesity, HTN, dyslipidemia, CHF, CVD, CKD and related cardiometabolic conditions by focusing on insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, fat Inflammation and energy metabolism.
