The Cardiometabolic Risk Initiative
Diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) pose significant threats to patients and major challenges to the medical community. Modifying type 2 diabetes and CVD risk factors offers the greatest potential for preventing or delaying both diseases and reducing associated morbidity and mortality.
These resources will help clinicians identify at-risk patients, integrate evidence-based risk management strategies to target modifiable risk factors, and provide education to patients.
