Exhibit in Portland


It is our pleasure to invite you to join us as an exhibitor at our 2019 Clinical Lipid Updates. NLA meetings provide you with an opportunity to reach your target audience of Lipidologists, Cardiologists, Endocrinologists, Primary Care Physicians, PhD researchers, and clinical team affiliates, from an array of disciplines including nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, exercise physiologists, and dietitians, in a uniquely intimate educational setting. We are proud to showcase not only an agenda led by distinguished faculty who are leaders in their fields, but a lively exhibit hall to act as a home-base for our attendees. On behalf of our board of directors and the members we serve, we look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Host a Symposium


The NLA has established that independently developed CME/CE-certified satellite symposia held in conjunction with the scientific meetings of the NLA are valuable opportunities to provide continuing education for our members and meeting participants.

In this regard, we are pleased to offer satellite symposia opportunities in conjunction with our 2019 Spring Clinical Lipid Update. Satellite symposia curriculum should include educational topics that complement or supplement the Spring CLU program agenda, addressing educational gaps preventing optimal patient care. Download our guidelines to view important information regarding hosting a satellite symposium, including the proposal creation and application processes.

Please contact the NLA Program Development department directly should you have any questions or require additional information. We hope to see you in Portland!
