Jose “Pepe” Alvarez Jr., M.D., Memorial Lecture on Vascular Disease: GLP-1 Receptor Antagonism: A New Frontier in Cardiovascular Health

Tuesday, May 21, 2024


Radiosurgery Symposium


Cardiovascular diseases are still among the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in the world today. To address this critical issue, the past decade has witnessed a surge in cardiovascular outcome trials focused on evaluating the cardiovascular safety and efficacy of various drugs. One class of drugs that has gained significant attention is the glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RA).

Please join us to hear Dr. Herbert D. Aronow discuss the novel cardiovascular applications of GLP-1 RA drugs in the assessment and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.


Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this conference, participants should be better able to:

  • Evaluate GLP-1 RA mediated cardiovascular risk factor modification.
  • Assess reduction in atherothrombotic event risk through GLP-1 RA.
  • Explore potential novel cardiovascular applications for GLP-1 RA.
