EuroMedix Partner with DGFF (Lipid-Liga)
e.V. since 2005
The German association for fighting lipid metabolic disorders and their sequelae “Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Bekämpfung von Fettstoffwechselstörungen und ihren Folgeerkrankungen”, or DGFF (Lipid-Liga) e.V., is an independent point of contact for issues related to lipid metabolism and atherosclerosis. Its declared aim is health education through the implementation and exchange of expertise in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis. Uncertainty due to ignorance and misinformation leads to misperceptions of the risk of dyslipidemia and its sequelae, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
As independent point of contact, DGFF (Lipid-Liga) promotes interdisciplinary collaboration between various specialist doctors, pharmacists and their healthcare partners.
Tag des Cholesterins
With the nationwide campaign “Tag des Cholesterins” or “Cholesterol Day”, DGFF (Lipid-Liga) contributes greatly to educating the public about the risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease. Each year DGFF (Lipid-Liga) appeals to pharmacies, companies, medical practices and clinics to support “Cholesterol Day” with blood lipid testing and educational activities.
Tag des Cholesterins 2015: Prof. Grützmacher (Vorstand), I. Löhlein (Geschäftsstelle Frankfurt am Main),
Mario Vanolst (EuroMedix Health am Dom GmbH)
EuroMedix is proud to have been a partner of DGFF (Lipid-Liga) since 2005 and is equally proud to support projects such as the nationwide “Tag des Cholesterins” and other initiatives promoting education and specialisation for the treatment and prevention of medical disorders.
