The ever-increasing presence of cardiometabolic risk factors continues to be a major challenge for health care providers in the United States. Current estimates suggest approximately 23%-38% of all US adults have metabolic syndrome, a constellation of cardiometabolic risk factors that includes excessive abdominal fat, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. These risk factors converge with chronic inflammation, hypercoagulation, and certain genetic traits to the detriment of patient health. Patients with metabolic syndrome have 3 to 5 times the likelihood of developing diabetes, and at least double the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and stroke. Other CVD consequences, such as acute coronary syndrome (ACS), thrombosis, and atrial fibrillation, have also been linked to metabolic syndrome. In addition, patients with multiple cardiometabolic risk factors commonly suffer comorbidities that can exacerbate CVD risk and negatively affect quality of life.

The 5th Annual New York Cardio-Endo-Renal Collaborative (NY CERC) will focus on strategic and novel approaches to the management of integrated cardiometabolic diseases. The expert faculty will deliver state-of-the-art clinical updates and strategies aimed at the intersection of metabolic disease and CVD prevention. Join us to hear expert perspectives on managing patients with cardiometabolic risk factors. Given the prevalence of cardiometabolic diseases and the scope of the problem, there is great need to bring scientific breakthroughs and clinical updates to a multidisciplinary mix of specialty clinicians.

At Physicians' Education Resource®, LLC (PER®), our top priority is ensuring the safety and security of our attendees, staff, and operational personnel. We are dedicated to remaining informed about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic at the global and local levels.
