The NLA leads the way in education of both our members and other professionals who care for and treat patients with lipid disorders. Our ongoing commitment to educating and updating these groups continues to be a prime interest of mine. The upcoming year promises to be one where the NLA will offer updated guidance in the field of lipidology and at the same time reach out and collaborate with other organizations to help promote our mission."
