Familial Hypercholesterolemia or Lipoprotein(a) Tweet-a-thon

Every year, the Family Heart Foundation holds two Tweet-a-Thons – one on FH Awareness Day (September 24) and one on Lp(a) Awareness Day (March 24).

What’s a Tweet-a-Thon?

A tweet-a-thon is quick-paced, virtual conversation held on Twitter. The point is to cover peoples’ feeds with information on FH and Lp(a) and why it’s important. It’s a simple and quick way to raise awareness, led by the Family Heart Foundation.

Who Participates in a Tweet-a-Thon?

Anyone with a Twitter account! The Family Heart Foundation will invite a panel of experts to be on Twitter at the time of the event to lead the discussion. They will share personal experiences and facts about FH or Lp(a).
