8th Annual Heart in Diabetes welcome letter coming soon!



Dear Friends & Colleagues,


The Heart in Diabetes (HiD) conference, entering its seventh year, is a renowned medical meeting that brings together global clinical leaders in diabetes, obesity, and cardiorenal metabolic diseases together with practicing clinicians to improve the care of patients at a high risk of these comorbidities.   This is a unique and exciting multidisciplinary program: Where the Heart, Kidney, and Diabetes Meet in Clinical Practice.


HiD 2023 will be held at the Hilton Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, PA on June 9-11, 2023. 

This will be a live-in-person conference followed by 90 days on demand. The conference will offer 27 CME / MOC credits. 


Each year, the HiD Conference is a rousing success, with progressive growth in attendance and impressive conference evaluations. In 2022 there were over 700 registrations from 76 countries, who rated the overall quality of the meeting at 97.5%. while 98% of participants stated that they would return the following year and recommend the meeting to others. 

This one-of-a-kind meeting has become an important venue where clinicians from multiple specialties work together to improve care for patients with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, heart failure, and related conditions. 

The 7th HiD ‘Luminary in Cardiometabolic Medicine Award’ will be presented to Dr. George Bakris.  His keynote lecture: Evolution of Renoprotective Therapy in Diabetes Translated into Cardioprotection           


The meeting will focus on clinical implications, all sessions will be comprised of or conclude with panel discussions and an open forum for audience questions, and ample opportunities for the audience to interact with the faculty. 

The conference includes an important Poster program, Oral Abstract Presentations, an attractive Exhibit Hall, and Industry Supported non-CME programs that feature important new scientific concepts with some of the world’s best-known educators in their fields.

The abstracts are published in American Heart Journal, Editor-in-Chief: Daniel Mark, MD, MPH).
