In addition, 33 percent of American adults are overweight.  In response to this obesity epidemic, the CMHC, the most influential U.S.-based medical and scientific conference in its field, gathers over 50 world-renowned experts in cardiometabolic health each year to educate clinicians on current strategies for the prevention, diagnosis and management of obesity, type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, dyslipidemia, thrombosis, acute coronary syndrome, chronic kidney disease and related comorbidities.
