The NLA offers an array of educational activities tailored to healthcare professionals at all stages of their careers. Our activities are available in a variety of program formats for your convenience. Our educational offerings include live meetings and course, print materials and online activities. These activities have been designed to prepare professionals for the certification requirements established by the American Board of Clinical Lipidology (ABCL) and Accreditation Council in Clinical Lipidology (ACCL).
