Know Diabetes by Heart™ Professional Education Webinar Series focuses on the link between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). The series will consist of relevant cutting-edge topics such as up-to-date standards of care, guidelines and their implications for T2D and CVD, and approaches to shared decision making — among other topics.

Managing Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease in Older Adults
Diabetes management in older adults requires regular assessment of medical, psychological, functional, and social domains. Older adults with diabetes have higher rates of premature death, functional disability, and coexisting illnesses, such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, and stroke, than those without diabetes.
Mending Mind and Body: Emerging Links Between Mental Health, Diabetes and Heart Disease
Diabetes can be hard on both the mind and the heart. People with diabetes are at least twice as likely to have depression than those without the disease, and fewer than half of them get diagnosed and treated.
How Chronic Kidney Disease in Type 2 Diabetes Contributes to Cardiovascular Disease
CKD in patients with T2D represents a major public health problem, resulting in significant cardiovascular and kidney adverse outcomes in the United States and worldwide.
Renal Disease in Patients with Heart Failure and Diabetes
People living with type 2 diabetes and kidney disease are 3X more likely to die of a cardiovascular event compared to patients with type 2 diabetes alone. On December 12th, 2020 Get With The Guidelines®-Heart Failure was updated to expand data collection and measurement of renal disease in patients with heart failure and diabetes. Join us to hear a comprehensive review of the science behind these latest updates and for a demonstration of the data elements and measures.
Best Practices for Integrating Diabetes Care and Managing CVD Risk in a Health System
Join us to hear best practices for integrating diabetes care and managing CVD risk across the health care system from two Target: Type 2 Diabetes℠ Honor Roll award winning hospitals. Guest speakers Melody Halio RN, BSN, SCRN, CCRN-K of Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital in Valencia, California, Heather Harpster, MS, RD, LD, CDE and Susan Maynard, MS, RN-BC, CCNS, CCRN-CMC, both of Mount Nittany Medical Center in State College, Pennsylvania, will share strategies for a multidisciplinary approach to diabetes care.
Management of Risk Factors in Patients with CVD and T2D
Numerous studies have shown the efficacy of controlling individual cardiovascular risk factors in preventing or slowing ASCVD in people with diabetes. The American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association and The American Society For Preventive Cardiology have partnered together to discuss Management of Risk Factors in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease and Type 2 Diabetes.
