Diabetes and cardiometabolic conditions
With the increasing recognition of the close relationship between diabetes, hypertension and other cardiovascular conditions, Serono Symposia International Foundation has decided to extend the coverage of the 'cardiovascular' section of the website and to focus more generally on cardiometabolic conditions.
This new microsite will support medical education across a range of specialisms in cardiometabolic medicine, including hypertension, diabetes, arythmias, and cardiac, cerebral and peripheral limb ischemic diseases.
To achieve this aim, all the educational materials related to diabetes have been moved from the endocrinology and metabolism section and are hosted in this cardiometabolic section.
Registered users should visit their profile page at 'MySSIF' and make sure they have subscribed to receive cardiometabolic updates.
