Cardiometabolic Disease Clinical Community is a product of the Cardiometabolic Health Alliance (CMHA)

Launched on October 10, 2013,  the Cardiometabolic Disease Clinical Community is a product of the  Cardiometabolic Health Alliance (CMHA) and is funded by The U.S. Diabetes Alliance and Genentech. This Community will further educate clinicians on important connections between diabetes and other cardiometabolic conditions such as hypertension and dyslipidemia and CV disease. We will highlight new strategies aimed to screen for these problems, detect those at highest risk to prioritize treatment, and identify newer and emerging therapies that have the potential for significant clinical benefit.
