The W. Virgil Brown Distinguished Achievement Award was established to honor one of the founding fathers of the NLA. Dr. Brown’s contributions to the field of lipidology and the National Lipid Association are unparalleled, and the Board of Directors of both the National Lipid Association and the Foundation of the National Lipid Association feel that this award should only be given to an exemplary clinician in the field of lipidology.
