Dialogues from the Dais: CVD Risk Reduction in the Hypertriglyceridemic Patient

1.50 CME
$0 FEE
lipid activity


This highly interactive, CME-certified activity, presented in an innovative format, features 5 renowned lipid experts discussing hot topics in lipid management with a focus on the patient with elevated triglyceride levels. Topics include the remarkable clinical and biologic findings of the role of omega-3 fatty acids in reducing ASCVD events, making sense of recent guidelines, more evidence on the role of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins in ASCVD, and new horizons for lipid management. This activity is a well-balanced program of science and clinical practice, and the featured experts provide a diversity of experience and opinion on complex issues and cases that challenge healthcare providers who care for patients with elevated atherogenic cholesterol.
