Register and Be Recognized
The Check. Change. Control. Cholesterol™ recognition program acknowledges ambulatory health centers and systems in their efforts to reduce heart attacks and strokes by appropriately managing cholesterol in their at-risk patient populations. The program is designed to help participants improve clinical practice while being celebrated for their hard work and dedication throughout the process.
Outpatient facilities and care teams play an important role in high cholesterol management and should be recognized for their efforts. View the full list of our 2022 nationally recognized organizations.
We will help promote your success as an example for others to follow. Each Participant and Gold Award recipient will receive a certificate to display their commitment and accomplishment in managing high cholesterol. More information on award levels and the submission process can be found below in our downloadable recognition resources.
