The Impact of Cardiometabolic Risk Across the Lifespan

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Cardiometabolic Risk (CMR) is the crossover of metabolic risk factors that foster both diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A large portion of the CMR is generated by the obesity pandemic which is now occurring across the lifespan. These CMR factors serve to foster early morbidity and mortality within our population.

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are optimally positioned to combat the increasing prevalence of cardiometabolic risk by addressing prevention and risk reduction, as well as treatment, monitoring, and essential patient education and involvement.

Abstracts due: November 15, 2018
