2022 DCMI Task Force

The DCMI Task Force members, all volunteers, represent the upper echelons in diabetes & the cardiorenal metabolic space. All are recognized leaders in their respective fields including past presidents and senior leaders of major societies like ADA, AHA, AACE, HFSA, ACC, KDIGO, and others.

 

Most importantly, they reach across the boundaries of their profession, able to bridge the complex aspects of diabetes, obesity, and associated comorbidities.
