Join the Pediatric Workgroup(PedAL)!
The mission of PedAL, the Pediatric Atherosclerosis Prevention and Lipidology Group, is to advance the field of pediatric atherosclerosis prevention and lipidology. Core activities include development of new scientific data, provision of expert information/teaching on cardiovascular risk to pediatric practitioners, provide a forum for management of rare lipid disorders, advocate for cardiovascular risk reduction in youth with key stakeholders, and develop educational material for the general public. PedAL will work with investigators, experts in lipidology, educators and practitioners in pediatrics and its subspecialties to better understand the etiology, early pathophysiology, and potential reversability of atherosclerosis. Appropriate lifestyle and pharmacotherapeutic management of risk factors in children and adolescents will be championed. Goals will be promoted within important national organizations and with the general public.
