Lipoproteins and Vascular Diseases Division Resource Center

Welcome to this free online continuing education activity, where you can view online presentations on important topics and information related to Lipoproteins and Vascular Diseases.

Two Powerpoint presentations are available to view.  After viewing each presentation, you will have the opportunity to provide feedback and to obtain continuing education credit (ACCENT®) using convenient online forms.

These presentations were given at the July 14, 2007 symposium hosted by four AACC divisions: Lipoproteins and Vascular Diseases Division; Molecular Pathology Division; Nutrition Division; and the TDM/Toxicology Division.
