Program Description

Program Description

The Heart in Diabetes (HiD) brings a multi-specialty world-renowned leaders in diabetes, obesity, and cardiorenal metabolic diseases interpreting state of the art clinical data to improve the care of the complex patients with these comorbidities.  


This year, the conference will focus on incorporating emerging data including clinical trials outcome into clinical practice.  Emphasis will be given on implementing Guidelines Directed Medical Treatment, addressing when and how to intervene early- to prevent and manage morbidities in patients with Diabetes, cardiorenal and metabolic diseases. The program will mix didactic presentations with cross-specialty panels with leading experts in cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology, and primary care experts. The interactive discussions allows ample time for Q & A , addressing treatment modalities, and implications to practice providing tools to ultimately improve the outcome of these patients.

The meeting will cover a wide range of topics including Obesity and Diabetes impact on Heart and Kidney, Women's Health, ASCVD, HF, Roles of Digital & Technology, Cardiomyopathy, Stroke Prevention and Treatment, Diabetes Management, Lipid Disorders, and emerging unique topics in the Cardio-Renal-Metabolic Space.


Learning Objectives
