To treat cardiometabolic syndrome effectively is to treat the individual. -Timothy Church, MD, PhD

Dr. Timothy Church, Professor of Preventative Medicine at Pennington Biomedical Research Center at Louisiana State University and Chief Medical Officer at ACAP Health in Dallas, Texas, will deliver the keynote address at the all-new national Cardiometabolic Risk Summit Spring conference (CRS Spring) held from May 30 – June 1, 2015 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, New Orleans, LA.

Author of over 200 research articles and co-author of "Move Yourself, The Cooper Clinic Medical Director’s Guide to All Healing Benefits of Exercise," Dr. Church will deliver a keynote presentation entitled Navigating the Cardiometabolic Treatment Spectrum from Behavioral Approaches to Surgery. In his presentation, he will outline a simple, clinically proven cardiometabolic risk stratification system as a foundation to discuss the spectrum of treatment strategies for cardiometabolic syndrome.

“To treat cardiometabolic syndrome effectively is to treat the individual. I’ll strive to answer the questions, ‘Where do I start?’ and ‘How do I tailor my approach?’ which are critical concepts to explore if primary care intervention will have success in managing this growing epidemic,” states Dr. Church.

In addition to the keynote, CRS Spring will feature a dynamic, evidence-based agenda that expands upon the various components of Dr. Church’s treatment spectrum and further examines all topics inherent to cardiometabolic risk, including obesity, diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and nutrition.

CRS Spring is developed in partnership with the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University, and is designed and accredited for the entire primary care team, as well as registered dietitians and pharmacists. Up to 15 CME/CE/CPE credits will be offered across more than 18 educational sessions spanning 2.5 days. Attendees will also have the opportunity to enhance their learning experience by adding a culinary medicine module at Tulane’s state-of-the-art teaching kitchen.
