Conference Description

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death for US men and women. The aging population, diabetes epidemic, underuse of preventive strategies and suboptimal control of risk factors could exacerbate the future CVD burden. This conference will educate physicians, advanced care providers and support staff on current guidelines and opinion on the identification and treatment of cardiovascular disease. This update will review the new 2018 ACC/AHA Guidelines on the Management of Blood Cholesterol, aspirin benefits and risks, the diagnostic value of calcium scoring, and the role of SGLT-2 inhibitors and GLP-1 agonists in reducing cardiovascular mortality.
