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.




This interactive video program will inform you on new treatment options for type 2 diabetes that promote long-term glycemic control with lower hypoglycemia risk as well as low risk for cardiovascular events. It features prominent experts in the field of diabetes and cardiology.
