This Special Issue will contain selected papers presented at the 13th Annual Cardiometabolic Health Congress, which will take place 24–27 October 2018 in Boston, MA, USA. Full details about the conference can be found at: https://www.cardiometabolichealth.org/2018/boston-13th-annual.html. 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, it is required to state in your cover letter to the journal both the title and number of your abstract to be presented at the 13th Annual Cardiometabolic Health Congress.
The Special Issue will highlight new developments in the field of cardiometabolic health, including dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular risk reduction, weight management, hypertension, and more. As the global cardiometabolic disease epidemic grows, clinicians face a rapidly expanding and aging patient population, leaving them with an urgent need for access to evidence-based research. As an extension of the Cardiometabolic Health Congress, the largest US-based multidisciplinary conference focused solely on the prevention and management of cardiometabolic disease, 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, and contributions will reflect the cross-disciplinary nature of the field.
