SUMMIT AT A GLANCE
This is a very exciting time for familial hypercholesterolemia. The promise of novel therapeutics and innovative approaches to case finding have created a tremendous opportunity for primary and secondary prevention. A partnership between healthcare providers, researchers and patients, the FH Foundation continues to bring FH to the forefront through an interdisciplinary approach. An invitation-only event, the annual FH Global Summit convenes global experts within various fields to tackle the most pressing issues facing FH populations today. The 2017 FH Global Summit will include topics on the challenges and opportunities of diverse FH subpopulations navigating diagnosis, care and access.
