We're here for you. Join our Support Network.

HIGH CHOLESTEROL is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers in the U.S. With support from Sanofi and Regeneron, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association is launching Check. Change. Control. Cholesterol™, a comprehensive cholesterol initiative focused on improving cholesterol control.

The Cholesterol Summit provided an opportunity to gather healthcare professionals, organizations, and patients in one room to discuss gaps and potential solutions in cholesterol management — from diagnosis to treatment to adherence.
