Family Heart Foundation Lipoprotein(a) Awareness Day

The Family Heart Foundation established Lipoprotein(a) Awareness Day to raise awareness worldwide of elevated Lipoprotein(a), also known as Lp(a). On March 24, we will use the power of our voices so that everyone understands why they should #KnowLpa. Through national and local media, as well as social media engagement, we will draw attention to this important inherited disorder and encourage everyone to join the movement. And we need your help!


By sharing important information, we can empower all stakeholders to spread the word about high Lp(a) as an under-recognized cause of premature heart disease and stroke. Over the last 10 years, the Family Heart Foundation - together with our advocacy partners, clinical champions, and patient advocates – have reached tens of millions of people with life-saving information about Familial Hypercholesterolemia.


This March we can reach more people at risk for early heart disease and stroke with the second annual Lp(a) Awareness Day and make a difference for those who may never have heard of this very common genetic condition.

Take action today and help millions living with elevated Lipoprotein(a)
