CME Symposium-Cardiovascular Risk Reduction With SGLT2 Inhibitors and GLP-1 Receptor Agonists: Taking a Closer Look
This CME Symposium takes place on Friday, June 7, 2019, from 6:30 PM- 9:30 PM at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, Golden Gate Ballroom A-B, San Francisco, California.
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is the leading cause of death in people with type 2 diabetes, and patients with diabetes and heart failure (HF) and/or chronic kidney disease (CKD) are associated with particularly adverse outcomes. New evidence from cardiovascular outcomes trials (CVOTs) has revealed that specific SGLT2 inhibitors or GLP-1 RAs improve cardiovascular outcomes, as well as slow the progression of kidney disease. This has resulted in a significant paradigm shift in the management of hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes, reflected in a Consensus Report by the ADA and the EASD. There are multiple potential mechanisms by which these therapies exert their cardio-renal benefits. The growing body of evidence for cardiovascular, heart failure, and renal benefits associated with specific drugs has mandated particular emphasis on effective clinician-patient communication regarding these agents to achieve goals of care, which are to prevent complications and optimize quality of life. In this program, leading diabetes experts (Chair Dr. Lawrence Leiter, and faculty members Dr. David Cherney, Dr. Melanie Davies, Dr. Darren McGuire, and Davida Kruger, NP)—from different components of the diabetes care team—will provide state-of-the-
