The IX Spring Meeting of Young Researchers of the Italian Society of Diabetology (SID), the Italian Society of Arterial Hypertension (SIIA), the Italian Society of Internal Medicine (SIMI), the Italian Society of Cardiovascular Prevention (SIPREC) and the Italian Society for the Study of Atherosclerosis (SISA), entitled “Research drives us crazy”, was held in Rimini on February 25-27, 2024. The Congress was organized by young researchers from the aforementioned scientific societies working in the cardiometabolic field. The Congress hosted five sessions promoted by the five societies, addressing hot topics in the prevention and treatment of cardiometabolic diseases.
More than one hundred young researchers had the opportunity to discuss their scientific work in dedicated oral and poster sessions. In this conference report, we offer an overview of the key topics covered in the presentations at the meeting.
