High Cholesterol? – The Basics
February 23 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
“High cholesterol is bad for you…” or “there are good and bad types of cholesterol” are phrases many of us have certainly heard, but without clear explanation. We’ll chat about what cholesterol is, types of cholesterol, how cholesterol is acquired, the effects of too much ‘bad’ cholesterol, when to start checking your cholesterol and how to reduce or prevent having high cholesterol. Please note: This is an informal discussion led by a medical doctoral student, not a healthcare provider employed by a hospital or private practice.
