Attend the First #NLAchat on Twitter!

Last Updated: Friday, 18-Sep-2015 16:00:00 EDT

Are you active on Twitter? If so, the NLA (@nationallipid) would like to invite you to join us on Wednesday, September 23 at 7 pm ET, for our first ever #NLAchat!

What is a Twitter chat? A tweet chat is a live Twitter conversation, focused on a topic and moderated by a host. To organize and filter all the chatter on Twitter into a single conversation, a designated hashtag (#NLAchat) is used. A set time is also established so that the moderator, guest, or host is available to engage in the conversation.

How do you participate? To participate, you need an active Twitter account. Make sure your account is not set to private. During the chat, all you need to do is tweet during the designated time using the conversation hashtag #NLAchat. Make sure you stay on topic! It’s also possible to just follow the conversation by searching the hashtag without engaging — but what fun is that?

The topic for our #NLAchat is: "The Effect of Diet and Physical Activity on Cholesterol." The NLA (@nationallipid) and experts will pose and answer questions regarding diet and exercise. The topic is based on the NLA Recommendations for Patient-Centered Management of Dyslipidemia – Part 2, which will be published on Friday, September 18 on the Journal of Clinical Lipidology website.

If you have questions regarding the Twitter chat, please contact Judith Thomas, Associate Director of Communications, at

We hope to see you on Twitter next week! In the meantime, share our tweets about the upcoming #NLAchat.
