EM2305E "Seldin Research Symposium: Foster Fellows Presentations" (IM GR-050523

Purpose and Overview

1. Multidimensional assessments of stress are needed to identify at risk individuals for cardiovascular disease (CVD) 

2. Discuss and present novel data on adipose tissue derived peptides in HFpEF.

3.Review the role of donor therapeutic hypothermia in preventing delayed graft function in low-risk non-pumped deceased-brain kidney donors.

4. Presentation of post-hoc analysis of SCD-HeFT trial 

5. Ageism in Rheumatology: the Health Care Professional’s Perspective

Target Audience

UT Southwestern faculty, fellows, residents and medical students, community physicians, nurse clinicians, physician assistants and nurses.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:

  • Recognize stress as a potentially modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD).
  • Identify Endotrophin as an important and targetable peptide implicated in the pathogenesis of HFpEF.
  • Interpret the trial data reaching the conclusion of no statistical benefit of donor therapeutic hypothermia in preventing DGF in kidney transplant recipients from low-risk non-pumped deceased-brain donors.
  • How frailty assessment modifies the outcomes in patient undergoing ICD placement.
  • Know that ageism is stereotypes, prejudice, or discrimination against others based upon age.
