Advanced Course on Rare Dyslipidaemia and Atherosclerosis - Importance of Personalized Medicine and Differential Diagnosis

Date: Friday, November 16, 2018

Venue:  Department of Endocrinology.GHE/Hospices Civils de LYON/ Lyon 1University. Groupement Hospitalier Est. Boulevard Pinel. 69003 LYON. France.

Aim: The aim of this course is to examine rare genetic disorders of lipid metabolism. While the prevalence of these individual disorders is low, they are challenging a specialized practitioner who often encounters patients with these conditions. Lipidologists need to be familiar with their diagnosis and treatment as they may be associated with high morbidity and mortality. The objective of this course is to review new aspects of their evaluation and management, and to highlight discussions with real clinical cases of these rare dyslipidemia.

Organized By: Faculté Lyon est univ Lyon 1/HCL 

Course language: Français/slides in English

Endorsed by: European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) and the new French Atherosclerosis Society (NSFA) 

Audience numbers: 15-35 persons
