For more than 50 years the Society’s expertise has been used to teach clinicians how to manage lipid disorders and how to prevent atherosclerosis. Through our publications, EAS creates a framework for discussion of new developments in the field. With live and online educational activities, EAS supports exchange of knowledge between scientists and clinicians. By reaching out to involve young scientists and researchers also from related disciplines we strengthen and expand development of the field now and in the future. The EAS-Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Studies Collaboration (EAS-FHSC) is a global registry established to accurately and reliably investigate the burden of FH, how FH is detected and managed, and the clinical consequences of current practices on delivery of care and outcomes. These activities will ultimately lead to improved healthcare for persons with cardiovascular disease and lipid disorders.
The Society uses its resources to encourage and highlight scientific excellence, and to strengthen research in the field of atherosclerosis by providing opportunities to young, up-and-coming scientists and researchers to launch or progress their international careers.
