  • Overview

    Managing patients with established CVD presents challenges in our practice every day. These patients may have had a prior stroke or MI and are at a very high risk of future life-threatening CV events. Join our expert faculty to hear the latest data on new and emerging statin adjuncts presented in a highly relevant and clinically applicable format. Barriers to the optimal management of ASCVD risk in many patient types (ethnicity/race/sex) will be addressed, and solutions to effectively manage such challenges in your everyday clinical practice will be provided.
