4th Annual New York Cardio-Endo-Renal Collaborative (NY CERC)

Saturday, September 12th, 2020

Live Webcast: 7:45 AM - 6:00 PM EDT

Activity Overview

Following an increase in the number of patients presenting with hyperlipidemia, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension, there has been a parallel rise in recent years in the incidence and prevalence of cardiovascular complications. Cardiometabolic risk incorporates a collection of risk factors that predispose individuals to cardiovascular disease (CVD). The 4th Annual New York Cardio-Endo-Renal Collaborative (NY CERC) will focus on strategic and novel approaches to management of integrated cardiometabolic diseases and deliver state-of-the-art clinical updates and strategies aimed at the intersection of metabolic disease and CVD prevention and management.
