Partnering for a shared purpose: getting every patient to their LDL-C goal
Many people taking medicine to help lower cholesterol still struggle to meet their cholesterol goals, others stop taking their cholesterol medicine completely. We believe patients deserve better than the status quo, that’s why we are fully focused on discovering and developing new, easy medicines to treat high cholesterol.
We work with patient advocates and organizations that represent the communities we seek to support and share our objective of helping every patient reach their treatment goals. We believe understanding the patient experience and patients’ unique and evolving medical needs is essential to our success. Advocacy is designed to promote education, awareness and access to treatment. Learn more about how we work with advocacy organizations in our Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct.
The organizations below offer resources and information for patients with high LDL-C, familial hypercholesterolemia and cardiovascular disease.
