WELCOME

It is our pleasure and privilege to invite you to register and attend the Cardio-Metabolic Summit on Saturday, November 1, 2014 in Ottawa, Ontario at the Westin Ottawa.

We are continuing to evolve our format which is being instituted in response to feedback from our participants and educational consultants. This format will contain shorter presentations, each of which will cover important and focused clinical questions.

The educational programming will allow participants to translate the latest evidence-based data to the bedside. Although our meetings have always been designed as highly interactive, this year we will be employing some new formats to further increase the interactivity. We are hoping this will stimulate discussion and will allow for the panel and Q&A session to be streamlined and focus on the key objectives and take home messages. You will still have an opportunity to ask any additional or specific questions that you may have.

We hope that you find the interaction with your colleagues enjoyable and find the topics presented useful in the management of your patients with cardiometabolic disease.


We look forward to welcoming you to this educational meeting.

With best regards,
