Program Overview

One out of four patients with type 2 diabetes in the United States dies of a cardiovascular event. This statistic, along with the epidemic of diabetes ,has created an opportunity for cardiologists to intervene in the management of patients with type 2 diabetes. This program will look at the latest data published over the last 18 months that have presented information to minimize the risk of a cardiovascular event by controlling glucose levels for the at-risk patient. A cardiologist and endocrinologist will discuss this new data and how these outcomes can be applied in order for the cardiologist to create effective management strategies for patients at risk.
 

Learning Objective

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
l         Describe how pharmacologic interventions may prevent or delay disease progression by improving insulin sensitivity and β–cell function
l         Explain how therapeutic approaches that control vascular inflammation in susceptible patients may decrease cardiovascular events
 

Target Audience

This symposium has been developed to meet the educational needs of cardiologists who are interested in raising the levels of care for their patients with type 2 diabetes.
