Diabetes and the Heart 2010 Webcast Series

September 13-14, 2010 | Boston, Massachusetts

Overview

Diabetes and the Heart 2010: A Clinical Summit on Critically Challenging Patients was the second annual summit of the Joslin Diabetes Center and Cleveland Clinic partnership. Among the largest and most respected academic providers of CME, our two institutions believe that the greatest reach and impact can be achieved in continuing medical education through innovative collaboration. With world-class clinical care protocols and cutting-edge knowledge in both diabetes and cardiac care, we feel that together, we will engage the largest audience more efficiently and effectively.

In September 2010, over 100 primary care providers, cardiologists, and others gathered in Boston to hear from national experts on the latest developments in preventive and therapeutic interventions for the cardiometabolic syndrome, with the goal of reducing eventual morbidity and mortality in their patients.

These video/slide Webcasts are speaker presentations recorded at the conference. Click on an activity title to register.
