Disclosures

Sandra Revill Tremulis is the Founder of the Lipoprotein(a) Foundation, with the vision to live in a world where elevated Lp(a) is routinely diagnosed, treated and family screened.

There is currently no treatment for high Lp(a). The foundation has a long way to go, but they are starting the conversation about inherited premature cardiovascular disease due to high Lipoprotein(a). Sandra does not want anyone to experience the tragic loss of a family member. She wants the research data -- and a treatment -- to be in place to help her daughter and all those children who have a high risk of inheriting elevated Lp(a) from their parents, to protect them from these serious and tragic risks.
