Why you should register for this meeting?

Cardiovascular disease, diabetes and all their various clinical manifestations remain one of the most important and frequently seen disease categories in everyday medical practice. Understanding your patients risk of a future cardiovascular event and how we as clinicians can reduce that risk is important to the future well being of our patients.
