American Heart Association (AHA) and American College
of Cardiology (ACC) are pleased to announce a series of new cardiovascular
prevention guidelines for the assessment of cardiovascular risk, lifestyle
modifications that reduce risk, management of elevated blood cholesterol, and
management of increased body weight in adults. These guidelines are based on
rigorous, comprehensive, systematic evidence reviews originally sponsored by
the NHLBI. The ACC and AHA collaborated with professional organizations to finalize
these AHA/ACC cardiovascular prevention guidelines, and stakeholder
organizations were invited to review and endorse the final documents.
