7–9 December 2023, Los Angeles, USA
WCIRDC 2023—21st Annual World Congress on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease (WCIRDC)
The World Congress on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease (WCIRDC), now in its 20th year, is a unique and exciting multidisciplinary CME conference. The Congress has become the premier global meeting dedicated to diabetes, obesity, lipids, cardiovascular-kidney, and liver disease, linking basic research to clinical practice in the pursuit of our theme: Exploring New Frontiers in Metabolism — Tomorrow’s Clinical Science Today.
WCIRDC 2023 will return to a live, in-person meeting at the Hilton Universal City Hotel in Los Angeles, on December 7-9, 2023.
WCIRDC is the only meeting of its size combining basic and clinical science. For nearly two decades, it has brought researchers, physicians, clinicians, and other healthcare professionals together for a distinctive international program that bridges the latest developments from bench-to-bedside-to-bench. “I heard it first at the Congress” is a frequent remark from the audience. WCIRDC offers attendees a unique experience to interact with the distinguished global faculty. It has an intimate setting, for a collaborative experience that explores the newest understanding of metabolic diseases and the development of future therapeutic modalities.
Since Dr. Gerald Reaven’s pioneering work crystallized the relationship between insulin resistance (IR), diabetes, obesity, and CVD, the Congress’ focus has expanded to cover the kidney, liver, brain, bone, cancer, and more. The Congress addresses dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, hypertension, hypercoagulation, inflammation, and energy metabolism. It provides the newest clinical updates on pharmaceutical interventions such as GLP1ra, SGLT2i’s, PCSK9i’s, MRA, and EPA, to name a few. The goal is to understand the state-of-the-art pathophysiology and new medical interventions, and to develop appropriate comprehensive clinical management strategies.
To make basic and clinical research topics relevant to clinical medicine, following each session there will be a live Q&A and a discussion on the implications to clinical practice. To promote more interaction with the faculty and provide further insights, each day will end with one hour of a live panel, providing a summary of the day, commentary, and opening for Q&A.
The Congress attracts state-of-the-art abstracts, young up-and-coming researchers, as well as recognized leaders from around the globe.
