Needham, MA (PRWEB) February 18, 2009 -- CardioCareLive, the first of its kind online medical conference for primary care physicians and other healthcare professionals who work with patients with cardiometabolic risk factors, today announced Metagenics as an exhibitor at the March 3-4 event. Metagenics will also sponsor a session by Dr. Larry Kaskel, Founder and Medical Director of the Heart Attack Prevention Center, who will speak on "Improved Patient Outcomes and Enhanced Revenue with Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes."

CardioCareLive provides an opportunity for healthcare practitioners to learn and interact with leading practitioners and stay informed about new treatments and therapies for patients with cardiovascular risk factors, such as Metagenics' FirstLine Therapy® program. This turn-key therapeutic lifestyle change program is easy to integrate into a practice and enables primary care physicians to provide lifestyle change therapies in a systematic way that is successful for the patient while also a revenue driver for the practice.
"Physicians recognize the need to guide their patients through lifestyle changes in order to achieve better outcomes," said Mike Katke, VP of Medical Marketing for Metagenics. "But time constraints and practice processes make ongoing care of this type challenging. FirstLine Therapy provides a systematic approach to aid patients in implementing lifestyle changes that can be truly successful."
CardioCareLive recognizes the need for time-constrained physicians to stay current with the latest healthcare innovations. The event delivers all the benefits of a physical medical conference, with live keynote presentations, lectures, peer networking and an exhibit floor, from the convenience of a computer.
