Healthy lifestyle choices are integral to the prevention and treatment of cardiometabolic syndrome.
MALVERN, PA (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
HMP Communications Holdings, LLC (HMP), a leader in healthcare communications and education, along with the industry’s most respected primary care news source, Consultant, are set to host the 2nd Annual Cardiometabolic Risk Summit conference and exhibition at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, NV from October 18-20, 2013. This national gathering of primary care clinicians has garnered the support of Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and resulted in the proclamation of October 2013 as Cardiometabolic Risk Awareness Month.
The three-day continuing medical education conference focuses on practical, clinically-relevant topics for primary care professionals, related to those disease states that comprise cardiometabolic risk: diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and lipid disorders. In addition to powerful coursework, the conference will also feature an interactive exhibit hall, keynote address from John E. Anderson, MD, a heart healthy conference menu and “meet and eat” with celebrity nutritionist Katie Cavuto Boyle, MS, RD, and Walk for Wellness, sponsored by Eisai Inc.
“Healthy lifestyle choices are integral to the prevention and treatment of cardiometabolic syndrome. The Cardiometabolic Risk Summit is dedicated to promoting healthy activity for all attendees at our 2013 conference,” says Edward Shahady, MD, conference course director. “As part of these efforts, we are proud to partner with industry supporter, Eisai Inc., and introduce the Walk for Wellness program into our conference offerings.”
Recently added to the 2013 program, the Walk for Wellness empowers conference-goers to log their total steps while in Las Vegas to see the correlation between walking and healthy lifestyle choices. All attendees will be given a pedometer to accurately record their miles and the top two walkers at the end of the conference will each win a $250 Nike Store gift certificate.
