Cholesterol Resources for Health Professionals

A group of pharmacists.

Many resources are available for health professionals to support cholesterol management.

Health professionals have many opportunities to educate others. To support that effort, CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention has put together two sets of educational materials. One set is for patients, and another set is for professionals.

  • Cholesterol Communications Kit: Health professionals can share these social media messages, graphics, and resources to educate their audiences about cholesterol and cardiovascular disease prevention.
  • Patient Education Handouts: These fact sheets and handouts can help patients understand how high cholesterol affects their health and how to make healthy lifestyle changes.
  • Tools and Training: These materials can help health professionals develop and support programs for preventing and managing high cholesterol.
