Lipid interest group
Why not join HEART UK's Lipid Interest Group?
It is open to all nurses and allied health professionals with an interest in cholesterol and other blood fats (lipids).
The group aims to:
- Help educate health care professionals and patients on all aspects related to lipids;
- Network and support those working in lipids;
- Promote up to date research and information on lipid problems and their treatments
- Identify new and current lipid clinics in the UK and those health care professionals involved with them.
We send out a ‘round robin’ every 2 months, which includes articles, information, recent research, case studies or anything related to raised lipids and their treatment which would be of interest to the members. We also share information on upcoming conferences, meetings and study days. Any member of the group can contribute/volunteer to do this.
The group meets annually and last year met at HEART UK's Annual Conference in Edinburgh in July 2016. Our next meeting will take place at HEART UK's Annual Conference in Coventry on Friday 7th July 2017 - details below:
HEART UK Annual Conference 2017, Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, Coventry CV4 7AL.
Lipid Interest Group Meeting will be held in National Grid Room, 1st Floor Arts Centre, between 08.00 - 08.30
