Physicians' Education Resource® Presents 2018 New York Cardio-Endo-Renal Collaborative

The conference will discuss novel approaches to integrate cardiometabolic disease management

CRANBURY, N.J.--()--Physicians’ Education Resource®, LLC (PER®), will host the 2018 New York Cardio-Endo-Renal Collaborative (NY CERC) on September 29, 2018, at the Westin New York Grand Central in New York City. The program will be chaired by James Underberg, M.D., FACPM, FACP, FNLA, immediate past president of the National Lipid Association, clinical assistant professor of medicine, New York University School of Medicine. This educational event will discuss latest innovations and advancements to treat and manage metabolic and cardiovascular diseases (CVDs).

“Cardiovascular and metabolic diseases can be challenging to treat alone, yet more and more patients present with comorbid disease that can make management exponentially difficult,” said Phil Talamo, president of PER®. “New management guidelines from the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and the American Diabetes Association address the need for more aggressive treatment approaches for these patients. This program will provide updates on these new guidelines, discuss new medications that can benefit patients across the continuum of cardiometabolic disease, and share best practices on how to optimally manage these complex patients.”

The following co-chairs will join Underberg during the conference:

  • Keith Ferdinand, M.D., FACC, FAHA, FNLA, FASH, professor of clinical medicine, department of cardiology, Tulane University Heart and Vascular Institute
  • Helena Rodbard, M.D., FACP, MACE, endocrine and metabolic consultant

NY CERC is a 1-day educational conference that focuses on emerging and novel approaches to integrated cardiometabolic disease management. During the program, attendees will gain insight into CVD prevention, diabetes, obesity management and lipid management, and other cardiometabolic risk factors. The conference will also delve into the multifaceted and individualized strategies designed to attain treatment goals and enhance patient outcomes.

This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, and attendees are eligible for a maximum of 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. For more information and registration, visit
