For decades, research statistics have illustrated a troubling trend within modern healthcare: by and large individuals throughout the globe die from cardiovascular and metabolic diseases more than any other cause. Further, one third of the population is vulnerable to at least one cardiometabolic risk factor. This is a public health crisis-- and one which must be dealt with head on by medical professionals of all backgrounds from across the globe.

For 15 years now, the Cardiometabolic Health Congress has helped lead the charge against this crisis by connecting clinicians with the most timely and advanced education available in the field. Now, for the first time in its 15 year span, CMHC will deliver a historic cardiometabolic educational event entirely online. With sessions streamed live, participants will be able to directly engage with leading clinical experts through an interactive online format. Planned and developed in direct response to the real-world clinical needs of active practitioners, the 15th Annual Cardiometabolic Health Congress will deliver the most valuable scientific knowledge and late-breaking updates through an easy-to-navigate online format.
