Led by the efforts of Carl Orringer, MD, FNLA, the National Lipid Association (NLA) has released the updated NLA Self-Assessment Program (NLA-SAP). The new program — now available for purchase — improves on the already existing NLA product that will continue to enhance your clinical knowledge of the core curriculum in clinical lipidology as well as challenge your problem-solving skills in the diagnosis and management of patients with dyslipidemia.
As part of the recent launch of the RADAR Campaign (RADAR: RAre Disease AwaReness), the Foundation of the National Lipid Association has released a digital cookbook featuring recipes geared toward the patient with Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS). The recipes included in the cookbook are low- to no-fat options offering a variety of healthy alternatives that are tasty and flavorsome! In addition to the cookbook, tearsheets and other patient resources were created to help improve the identification and management of rare lipid disorders.
The National Lipid Association is proud to announce the first-ever NLA Junior Faculty Research Award. The purpose of the award is to encourage scholarly advancement of Junior Faculty in the pursuit of a career related to hyperlipidemia and other lipid disorders in humans.
The award will be funded for three years, with two award cycles: Basic Science Award and Clinical Science Award.
