International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk
The International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk’s primary objective is to help raise awareness of abdominal obesity and its associated metabolic complications as a new modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The revamping of ICCR website followed a decision to extend this educational objective to a larger audience. Our website provides comprehensive, up-to-date, and easy-touse source of information on abdominal obesity and cardiometabolic risk. It is highly interactive and features free slides, webcasts, and videos in which world-renowned experts discuss themes relevant to cardiometabolic risk. By providing an educational platform and by working to create new prevention and treatment strategies, our two websites and our internet partnership are a direct response to stop and reverse the abdominal obesity pandemic, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease for the benefit of patients and society alike worldwide.
