Course Description
The course will cover state-of-the-art management of patients with cardiovascular risk factors, with a focus on prevention. This year’s program includes topics such as dyslipidemia, obesity and cardiovascular imaging. Cardiovascular Disease is complex, and recent Mendelian studies shed light on the role of genetics in the disease process. The program will take a closer look at diabetes, including personalized diabetic care, an emerging concept with promising outcomes. New studies have sparked controversy over the role of testosterone in heart disease, a new topic to the course. Platelets play an important role in Coronary Artery Disease, and this course will provide relevant updates. The recent release of updated guidelines on blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity will provide state-ofthe-art principles that will guide the presentations and discussions.
