"Achieving Diplomate status from the American Board of Clinical Lipidology provided me a phenomenal education, and recognition as an expert. It has given me the opportunity to realize my dream of owning a comprehensive cardiometabolic risk reduction center, and the ability to establish myself as a thought leader within the lipidology community." Tara Lynn Dall, MD
"Certification in Lipidology through the ABCL has been very important in my career development. As a general internist with a background in biochemistry and a strong interest in cardiovascular disease prevention, certification in Lipidology enabled me to transition my practice to specialize in these areas. I was appointed director of a lipid clinic and now am able to focus my entire practice in this direction. I am recognized as a specialist by both my patients and peers." James A. Underberg, MD, MS, FNLA
