Topics

The meeting welcomes abstract submission. In line with the unique nature of the meeting, we invite you to share interesting and educational clinical cases in the field of cardiovascular disease prevention in general and diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, in particular. Case reports and abstracts that highlight these aspects (but not limited to):

  • A challenging condition and its resolution
  • A case that poses a dilemma you want to discuss during the Poster session
  • A practical implementation of guidelines and/or clinical trials
  • An rare diagnosis and its diagnostic process
  • A case that emphasizes your interpretation of a patient centered approach
  • A case that emphasizes the concept of personalized medicine
