ˆ Hope Gala Registration

 

WHERE:

International Museum of Surgical Science (IMSS)

1524. N. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL

 

WHY:

The Understanding Lipoproteins exhibit reviews the health impact of lipoproteins, particles in the blood that carry what is often referred to as bad and good cholesterol

ˆ It is estimated that 63 million in the US have inherited high Lp(a)

ˆ Lp(a) concentrations can be measured by a simple blood test, but it is not included in most standard lipid panel tests that check cholesterol levels

ˆ A study published in JACC shows that the current cholesterol screening will miss 8% of people who have a cardiovascular event whose only risk factor is high Lp(a)

 

WHO:

The following cardiovascular event survivors and cardiovascular disease experts are available to discuss hereditary risks of cardiovascular disease associated with Lp(a):

ˆ Sandra Revill Tremulis, survivor and founder of Lipoprotein(a) Foundation

ˆ Celina Edelstein, University of Chicago research scientist and Dr Scanus colleague

ˆ Henry Ginsberg, MD Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and Chief Medical Officer for The Lipoprotein(a) Foundation

ˆ Monica Stokes, International Museum of Surgical Science
