The Foundation of the National Lipid Association (Foundation) was formed in 2008 to serve as an education and research organization in the field of clinical lipidology. Built on the groundwork of our predecessor, the Florida Lipid Foundation, the Foundation has turned its focus to providing education and materials and conducting health awareness initiatives to help patients and their families manage and overcome lipid disorders. The mission of the Foundation is to improve the welfare of patients and families affected by cholesterol and triglyceride problems.
