As we now understand that there is a strong correlation between cardiovascular complications and diabetes, we have expanded our mission to include cardiovascular and renal disease. To that end, we have created a specialized subgroup within Worldwide Diabetes, named “Worldwide CardioDiabetes.” Led by a world-renowned Board of Directors, our first initiative was an international congress in partnership with the Sociedad Mexicana de Nutrición y Endocrinología, September 27-28, 2019, in Guadalajara, Mexico. The two-day course included 20 international and national speakers and was attended by 250 health care professionals. A 2020 international congress is currently being planned.

Click here to visit the Worldwide CardioDiabetes webpage, where you can learn more information about its mission, Board of Directors, and important resources.




Worldwide Cardio Diabetes held a virtual symposium during the recent 7th International Conference on Prehypertension, Hypertension, Metabolic Disorders and Cardiovascular Disease and it is now available on demand. “Diabetes and CardioRenal Disease: Can We Reduce the Impact of this Deadly Combination” features presentations by Drs. Andrew Boulton, George Bakris, Martin Rutter, and Philip Home, delving into the important topics of the kidney and cardiovascular risk, treating heart failure, and improving outcomes in diabetes beyond glucose control therapies.
