The Project Review Committee
The Project Review Committee will develop and review specific educational activities (CME/CE-certified and non-CME) under the direct auspices of the NLA Board of Directors and Executive Committee. Activities are designed to improve the knowledge, competence and skills of health professionals involved in the delivery of clinical lipid care as well as to provide educational outreach to non-members on topics of greatest need. The Project Review Committee will seek to round out the NLA educational program and professional development track by providing activities in a variety of formats, including but not limited to live meetings and courses, online, print, self-assessment programs, case presentations and performance improvement activities.
The Project Review Committee includes a Chair and/or Co-chair and at least one (1) regional representative from each chapter. Members should also represent each discipline of NLA including physicians, nurses, pharmacists and dietitians.
