Abstract Submission Topics
Abstracts should address state-of-the-art clinical research aspects of diabetes and the heart. (As an example, obesity by itself will NOT qualify, but obesity as it relates to diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease will qualify).

Topics include: diabetes, hypoglycemia, prediabetes, and/or cardiometabolic syndrome, retinopathy, obesity, neuropathy, dyslipidemia, triglycerides, cholesterol, hypertension, congestive heart failure (CHF), atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, arrhythmia, kidney/renal disease, cardiorenal syndrome, thrombosis, coagulation abnormalities, therapeutics, clinical trials, cardiovascular outcome trials, epidemiology, fatty liver, inflammation, guidelines on practice, technology, peripheral vascular disease, and related conditions

Although the posters are not designed for basic science, abstracts which consider unknown MOA (mode of action) of medications or pathophysiology of related medical conditions may be accepted.

Abstract Oral Presentations
Four of the highest ranking abstracts will be selected for the Abstract Oral Presentation Session. In some cases, the committee may consider Late Breaking Abstracts for oral presentation. The authors of the winning abstracts will present their research findings in a 10 minute presentation, followed by a 5 minute period of Q&A. If selected, an author is required to register to the meeting and to be prepared with a PowerPoint presentation. Oral presenters who have an interest or involvement in selling a technology, program, product, and/or service to healthcare professionals must submit an official disclosure document in order to be considered for and to present their work at the abstract oral session.
