The International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS) and the Oman Society of Lipid and Atherosclerosis (OSLA) just concluded the first IAS - OSLA course on Lipid Metabolism and Cardiovascular Risk which was held in Muscat, Oman (February, 8-10, 2015) and co-chaired by the International Atherosclerosis Society and Dr. Khalid Al-Rasadi (Oman), President of the Oman Society of Lipid and Atherosclerosis.

This meeting addressed one of the most important public health issues of the 21st century. We should not forget that lipid disorders, such as high cholesterol and triglycerides to mention the most common ones, are major risk factors for cerebrovascular diseases that we know to be linked to the growing epidemics of obesity and diabetes worldwide and especially in the MENA region countries. Prevention of these diseases to be implemented thorough a healthier life style and, when needed, a better adherence to lipid lowering treatment is one of the goals national health systems have to reach in order to have healthier populations.
