SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—The National Lipid Association (NLA), a nonprofit, multidisciplinary medical society focused on enhancing the practice of lipid management in clinical medicine, marks a major milestone this year with its tenth anniversary.

However, abnormally high or low lipid levels can lead to illness and cardiovascular disease, including arterial blockage, heart attack, and stroke.

September is National Cholesterol Education Month, the National Lipid Association (NLA) wants to arm you with cholesterol-friendly recipe ideas to tackle the tailgate without sacrificing taste.
