Co-host: Dr. Mike Kirlew
Yet another core Family Medicine topic this week, hyperlipidemia. The best reading you can do for the exam around this topic is to read through Dr. Michael Allan et al.'s recent article in the CFP titled Simplified lipid guidelines: prevention and management of cardiovascular disease in primary care, but of course we'll have a "summary of the summary" up in the study notes very soon!
