Statement of Need

The ever-increasing presence of cardiometabolic risk continues to be a major challenge for health care professionals in the United States. The prevalence of most cardiometabolic risk factors – especially hypertension, diabetes, and obesity – continues to rise. In the years ahead, American physicians should expect to treat unprecedented numbers of patients at high risk for morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease. In 2000, approximately 32% of U.S. adults had the metabolic syndrome, a constellation of cardiometabolic risk factors including excessive abdominal fat, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. In more recent years that figure has climbed to 34%, and it may even be as high as 38%, depending on the criteria used to define the syndrome.

Patients with multiple cardiometabolic risk factors have twice the likelihood of developing and dying from cardiovascular disease and more than seven times the risk of developing diabetes, compared to those with no cardiometabolic risk factors. As the number of these patients increases, the burden of cardiovascular disease can be expected to increase in the United States as well. Unfortunately, cardiovascular disease already affects approximately 82.6 million U.S. adults and is the leading cause of U.S. deaths. According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease causes more than 800,000 deaths each year – more than cancer and accidents combined. This is an average of more than 2,200 deaths per day, or one death every 39 seconds.


Health care professionals play a major role in stemming the future burden of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and associated comorbidities by employing aggressive strategies for the early identification and comprehensive management of patients presenting with multiple cardiometabolic risk factors. The 2014 Cardiometabolic Health Congress will translate the latest cutting-edge medical research into practical, clinical approaches for preventing, delaying, and managing cardiovascular and metabolic risk. The goal is to provide the medical community with evidence-based interventions to improve health outcomes and quality of life for the growing numbers of patients at increased cardiometabolic risk.

Purpose Statement

To improve patient outcomes through early identification and intervention strategies for patients with, or at risk of developing, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Target Audience & Learning Objectives

The CMHC is designed for advanced-level clinicians responsible for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cardiometabolic risk. 
At the end of the congress, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the interrelationships among the various cardiometabolic risk factors, their impact on cardiovascular health, and their common comorbidities.
  2. Translate evidence-based strategies for prevention, screening, and treatment of cardiometabolic risk factors and their comorbidities to their clinical practice.
  3. Identify which interventions, including lifestyle changes and various drugs in combination, are most appropriate for particular patients based on their risk profiles.
  4. Identify how novel and emerging therapies can be integrated into clinical practice to reduce morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular and metabolic disease.

Event Overview
Welcome message:
The 2014 Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) will take place October 22-25, 2014 in Boston, MA. The CMHC 2014 curriculum will provide the most effective, current strategies for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity, thrombosis, chronic kidney disease, insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia and related comorbidities.
Join our mailing list to receive the latest and greatest information regarding the 2014 CMHC program agenda and faculty.
Integrated management of all aspects of cardiometabolic risk is the only way to approach the rapidly growing epidemic of cardiovascular and metabolic disease. The 9th Annual Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) delivers the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art data and strategies aimed directly at the intersection of these diseases– imparting the scientific basis and practical clinical tools essential to combat cardiometabolic risk and the multitude of related comorbidities. This year’s Congress will be the most comprehensive to date.

The CMHC provides unprecedented access to the largest U.S.-based multidisciplinary cardiometabolic risk summit of 1,500+ clinicians world-renowned faculty, plenary sessions, and interactive case-based symposia to deliver on all counts – translating the most current clinical data into real-world solutions that will undoubtedly make a significant impact on your daily practice.

The biggest health problem facing the world today is from the 
combined impact of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. 
It is critical that physicians and health care providers understand 
the predictive relationship between metabolic risk factors and cardiovascular disease and employ aggressive intervention strategies 
to prevent and/or delay disease progression.
