This innovative educational symposium is designed to meet the needs of healthcare providers (HCPs) who have a role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with cardiometabolic diseases (CMDs), namely type 2 diabetes (T2DM), chronic kidney disease (CKD), and heart failure (HF). Using a combination of didactic lecture and simulation case challenges tailored to a primary audience of primary care physicians and a secondary audience of cardiologists, nephrologists, endocrinologists, hospitalists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and certified diabetes educators, this program aims to enhance the clinician knowledge of the application of SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 RAs to the management of heart failure and chronic kidney disease. With a focus on evidence-based care, and holistic patient care, this program strives to improve communication among multidisciplinary care team members to optimize patient care.


Healthcare professionals that manage patients with CKD and HF:

  • Formulate strategies to promptly identify and diagnose patients with CDK or HF or those at risk for disease progression.
  • Integrate evidence-based guidelines for managing CKD and HF based on the latest evidence for SGLT2i and GLP-1 RA agents and patient-specific factors.
  • Discuss the clinical efficacy and tolerability profiles of approved novel and investigational agents for the treatment of CKD and HF.

Healthcare professionals that provide care for the overall management of cardio-renal-comorbid conditions:

  • Implement a holistic, patient-centric care approach which streamlines communication across a multi-disciplinary care team to reduce current barriers to optimally manage patients with cardio-renal-metabolic comorbidities, includingT2D, HF, and CKD
