Targeting inflammation could provide a novel pathway for treating atherosclerosis--learn how in this course. 

The Learning Process:

Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 30 minutes.

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, and dietitians. 

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the role of inflammation in the development of heart disease.
  • Identify the clinical concept of “residual inflammatory risk.”
  • State how targeting inflammation may provide a novel pathway to treat atherosclerosis, beyond lowering cholesterol.

Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.

Recorded live at the 2019 International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.
