National Lipid Association (NLA)


The mission of the National Lipid Association (NLA) is to enhance the practice of lipid management in clinical medicine. NLA's goals are in sync with the Million Hearts™ initiative to decrease events through diet and lifestyle modification, and promotion of the ABCS, with an emphasis on lowering cholesterol. The organization will support the initiative by disseminating Million Hearts™ messages on heart disease and stroke prevention in its communications vehicles such as Lipid Spin, Leadership Link, the NLA website, the Learn Your Lipids website and the @lipid electronic newsletter. The NLA's major public awareness campaign, "FH, It's Relative: Know your Family Cholesterol History" focuses on Familial Hypercholesterolemia and supports the Million Hearts™ goal of lowering cholesterol by urging Americans to know not only their own cholesterol history but also that of their ancestors.
