W. Virgil Brown, MD, FNLA
This award is the highest honor conferred by the NLA, honoring outstanding contributions in the diagnosis and treatment of lipid disorders.
The W. Virgil Brown Distinguished Achievement Award and Lectureship was established to honor its namesake, a founder of the NLA whose contributions to the field of lipidology and the presenting organizations are unparalleled.
Since the award’s inception in 2009, the NLA and the Foundation of the NLA have annually recognized one exemplary clinician in the field of lipidology who has made outstanding contributions in the diagnosis and treatment of lipid disorders.
Awardee must be nationally (if not internationally) known for significant contributions in the diagnosis and treatment of lipid disorders and the education of healthcare providers in this important field. Awardee will ordinarily be an NLA member.
The W. Virgil Brown Distinguished Achievement Award recipient will be nominated and selected annually by a joint selection committee between the National Lipid Association and the Foundation of the NLA.
The recipient receives honorary lifetime membership in the NLA and is entitled to all member privileges without paying dues. The awardee will receive a travel stipend to attend the NLA Annual Meeting where they will be presented with a plaque and monetary award.
This award is supported by The Dyslipidemia Foundation.
