Cardiovascular-Diabetes Symposium Returns This Month

Diabetes is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

According to Diabetes Canada, people with diabetes may develop heart disease 15 years earlier than those without diabetes and are 3 times more likely to die of heart disease. In order to better manage and treat at-risk patients, it is critical for clinicians to understand this relationship and stay up-to-date on the latest developments.

The 2nd Annual Joint Cardiovascular-Diabetes Symposium is the result of an innovative partnership between the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre and the Banting & Best Diabetes Centre. Through lectures, interactive breakout cases, and Q & A sessions, this symposium will explore the interactions between diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Upon attending, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the latest evidence on cardiovascular risk reduction in diabetes and management of patients. In addition, they will be better able to integrate latest recommendations into clinical practice.

Topics will include:

  • Early Diabetes
  • Progression of Diabetes
  • Complications of Diabetes
  • Coronary Disease and Vascular Compilations
  • Valvular Heart Disease and Arrhythmia
  • Heart Failure & Cardiac Devices

The Joint Cardiovascular-Diabetes Symposium will take place from January 17-18, 2020 at the Hilton Toronto. Family physicians, cardiologists, endocrinologists, nurses, dietitians, and pharmacists are encouraged to attend.
