The World Congress on Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease (WCIRDC), now in its 19th 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 pursuit of our theme: Exploring New Frontiers in Metabolism — Tomorrow’s Clinical Science Today.

WCIRDC 2021 will return to Live in Person meeting at the Hilton Universal City Hotel in Los Angeles, on December 2-4, 2021. The conference will also have a virtual component- Streaming Live online followed by 90 days On Demand.

In this CME meeting participants can earn up to 24 CME & ABIM-MOC credits.

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. In 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, 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, 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 live Q&A and a discussion on implications to clinical practice. To promote more interaction with faculty and provide further insights, each day will end with one hour of live panel, providing summary of the day, commentary, and open for Q&A.

The Congress attracts state-of-the-art abstracts attracting, young up-and-coming researchers as well as recognized leaders from around the globe. The abstracts will be published in Metabolism, a peer-reviewed journal and also available for 90 days on demand

The congress is featured by many media outlets with proceedings featured in global medical news venues such as Healio, Medscape, Endocrinology & Cardiology Today, Clinical Endocrinology News, Practical Cardiology, HCP Live, and more, while articles are being published in peer-reviewed journals like Journal of Diabetes, Endocrine Practice, Metabolism, Diabetes & Vascular Disease Research, Diabetes and its complications and others.
