  • Overview

    We now have evidence-based options to reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) event burden beyond any previously available therapy. A collaborative approach to addressing residual cardiovascular risk across a variety of risk factors that goes beyond LDL-C-lowering therapies is needed to optimally manage patients with or at high risk of ASCVD. Pharmacists treating these patients will benefit from a review of recent data and guidelines so they can incorporate these findings into clinical practice. Join us to ensure you’re keeping up with the science and giving your patients the best care.
