The World Congress on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease (WCIRDC), now in its 18th year, is a unique and exciting multidisciplinary program. Since its inception, the Congress has become the premiere global meeting dedicated to diabetes, obesity, lipids, cardiovascular disease, metabolism and energy balance. It provides an exclusive opportunity for practicing professionals, clinical and basic scientists, researchers and other clinicians to collaborate on emerging scientific principles and management strategies. The WCIRDC faculty consists of distinguished global experts who link research to clinical practice in a bench-to-bedside approach that is unique to this state-of-the-art program. At the 18th WCIRDC, attendees will participate in clinical workshops, meet the expert sessions, and clinical lectures, all of which provide an opportunity to personally interact with the world’s top professionals in an intimate setting. Every session will conclude with another unique feature of the Congress: expert commentary on the clinical implications of basic and scientific research and Q&A Panel Discussions.
