Should We Continue to AIM-HIGH or Set Our Sights Low?

Schedule: On Demand (The original live program aired on December 15, 2011 at 7:00pm EST)

Program Overview:
The preliminary release of data from the AIM-HIGH trial left clinicians asking questions about the role of niacin therapy and raising HDL-C in patients at LDL goal. The final results from this trial were presented at the American Heart Association meeting on November 15, 2011. Join Drs. William Boden and James Falko as they discuss the implications of the study and the potential impact on your clinical practice in a live CME-CE webcast. Ask your questions of the expert faculty during the Q&A session at the conclusion of the activity.
