Cardio Renal Connections Is Postponed
Stay Tuned For Future Date
The planners of the Cardio Renal Connections and the Office of Continuing Medical Education (CME) have made the difficult and unprecedented decision to cancel the 4th Annual Cardio Renal Connections Conference scheduled to take place April 24-25, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas.
The decision to cancel the annual event was not taken lightly. We have been closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as state and local governments. In the last week, we also learned of the increasing number of travel advisories and restrictions being placed on health care providers and hospitals and institutions in the U.S. and globally.
CARDIO RENAL CONNECTIONS
Bridging Heart, Kidney and Metabolic Diseases
WHAT IS CARDIO RENAL CONNECTIONS ALL ABOUT?
Cardio Renal Connections is a unique meeting bringing together clinicians and scientists to explore the complex relationships between the heart and kidney. The interplay between the kidneys and the cardiovascular system is complex. The close relationship of renal function and cardiac function has given rise to the concept of cardio renal syndromes. This interplay extends beyond these syndromes and manifests itself in the form of hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and peripheral vascular disease. With the epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and aging of the United States population, physicians will continue to face a growing number of patients with renal and cardiovascular disease. This interprofessional CE program will serve to help foster education and discussion about the intersection of these two pathophysiologic systems.
