A global recognition: discover our story and legacy!

The commencement of our digital educational platform, the EAS Academy, in 2012, served as the primary catalyst for our subsequent accomplishments.

Learn about the pivotal moments, the challenges overcome, and the remarkable growth that has defined our legacy. Join us in revisiting our roots and embracing the rich history that continues to inspire us today.

In 2014, we introduced the first Certificate of Excellence in Lipidology, a CME-accredited program highly valued by clinicians, alongside providing regular updates to our members. The year 2015 marked the initiation of our extensive global collaborations and outreach efforts. During this time, we established a worldwide network of FH investigators dedicated to understanding the burden of both homozygous and heterozygous FH.

In 2017, we furthered our collaborative efforts by partnering with the first national atherosclerosis societies and related organizations, engaging in educational and communicative endeavors within the atherosclerosis domain.

By 2021, the establishment of the Lipid Clinic Network (LCN) introduced a structured approach to uphold uniform standards in diagnosing, managing, and treating patients with lipid disorders, aligned with ESC/EAS Guidelines on dyslipidemia management.

In 2024, we expanded our outreach to new communities by launching the Certificate in Lipidology for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals. Additionally, the formation of the EAS LatAm Chapter and the initiation of the LIPRA Registry project demonstrate our commitment to reaching diverse regions and advancing lipid research and care.

It beautifully reflects the consistency and enduring goals of our society, which remain relevant even today, after 60 years. This lasting dedication speaks volumes about our unwavering vision and commitment. Looking back on six decades, we’re reminded of our steadfast mission and timeless values. It’s a testament to our resilience and ongoing relevance in an ever-changing world.
