The 15th Annual Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) will take place 21–24 October 2020 in Boston, MA, USA. Full details about the conference can be found at https://www.cardiometabolichealth.org/2020/boston-15th-annual.html. This Special Issue will be made up of papers presented at the conference. Only papers to be presented at the conference as poster presentations will be considered for publication in this Special Issue. As part of the submission process, please state both the title and number of your abstract to be presented at the 15th Annual CMHC in your cover letter to the journal.
The global epidemic of metabolic syndromes, a constellation of cardiometabolic risk factors, as well as obesity, type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and NAFLD/NASH, have become a worldwide modern-day health hazard. As these diseases and risk factors exist in a continuum, they cannot be treated in silos, which is unfortunately what tends to happen in clinical practice. The Cardiometabolic Health Congress has been at the forefront of educating clinicians about the whole spectrum of cardiometabolic disease and practical ways to address them. Since its founding in 2006, CMCH has grown to be the largest US-based multidisciplinary conference focused solely on the prevention and management of cardiometabolic disease.
As an extension of CMHC, this Special Issue will emphasize the complexities, challenges, and advancements in this field. It aims to give clinicians an additional platform to access articles that represent new updates in cardiometabolic health. Contributions will reflect the cross-disciplinary nature of the field.
