Save the Date! Cardio Renal Metabolic/Endocrine Assembly, a virtual event November 8 & 9

CaRMA: Cardio Renal Metabolic/Endocrine Assembly, November 8 & 9

PCEC has designed CaRMA, a two-day virtual event in its inaugural year to deliver the latest clinical updates, advancements, and best practices in cardiovascular, renal, metabolic, and endocrine disease management to an audience of US-based NPs and PAs and other clinicians with an interest in these disease states. 

CaRMA fills an educational gap for NPs and PAs created by the unprecedented and sudden discontinuation of the metabolic and endocrine disease summit (MEDS) previously offered to NPs and PAs in the US, attracting thousands of participants for 13 years.

Attendees who participate in CaRMA on the virtual platform will almost feel like they are at a conference in-person; the platform will have main entrance, a large lobby, supporter booths, networking sessions, and rooms dedicated to educational sessions. Participants will feel as if they are “moving” through the platform to explore different activities. PCEC hosts several virtual Summits each year, with average ratings of 4.8 out of a possible 5.

Registration will begin May 1. Visit for more details!

Our newest partner: Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association

Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association

The Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association is the leading nursing organization dedicated to preventing and managing cardiovascular disease.

PCNA's members are nurses and nurse practitioners that assess risk, facilitate lifestyle changes, and guide individuals to achieve treatment goals at clinics, hospitals and universities across the country.

The current state of health care demands that nurses and advanced practice nurses play a leading role in identifying and implementing cardiovascular risk reduction strategies. PCNA is committed to supporting nurses so they may successfully rise to this challenge, through the development of professional and patient education, leadership, and advocacy.


PCNA is thrilled to be holding their 30th Annual Cardiovascular Nursing Symposium in person in Orlando, FL, and virtually wherever you are April 18-20, 2024.

The 2024 Cardiovascular Nursing Symposium will continue its tradition of combining clinically relevant content presented by world-renowned and regional experts with a vibrant atmosphere that allows you to return to your practice rejuvenated and energized.
