The American College of Cardiology’s CardioSmart will be hosting a live educational program: “Managing Your Heart Health: Cholesterol" in Atlanta.
High cholesterol will affect roughly half of all men and one-third of all women at some point in their lives. The goal of this program is to educate the community on the importance of lowering “bad” cholesterol and how to manage other risk factors to prevent heart disease.
This program can help you:
- Understand the different kinds of cholesterol and factors that cause high cholesterol
- Learn about signs and symptoms, and treatment options for managing LDL “bad” cholesterol
- Learn how to communicate effectively with the health care team
- Get questions answered by the experts
Join us for lunch and learn more about taking an active part in your heart health. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please email CardioSmartLive@acc.org or call 202-375-6251.
This downloadable resource guide covers the management and treatment of high cholesterol, in addition to providing valuable information on caregiving and resource and support services.
This program is supported by Sanofi Regeneron.
