Sudha Ravilla, MD Recognized by National Lipid Association
The National Lipid Association’s (NLA) South East chapter recently recognized Sudha Ravilla, MD in the member spotlight of the chapter’s quarterly newspaper. The member spotlight is a segment in the Chapter’s Newsletter that is dedicated to recognizing health care professionals that have made significant contributions to the field of Lipidology.. Below is an excerpt from the spotlight:
“Dr. Ravilla is a proud Lifetime member of the NLA and is passionate about the field of Lipidology. She is an ACCL Board Certified Lipidologist and has been involved in multiple lipid-related activities, the most recent of which was an NPR series on Familial Hypercholesterolemia. She is the Medical Director of the Lipid Center, TMH Metabolic Health Center in Tallahassee, Florida. The objective of the Lipid Center, with a 100% dedication to Lipid Practice, is to provide Comprehensive Dyslipidemia care for Primordial, Primary as well as Secondary CV Preventative care. This practice is also uniquely co-located with other Metabolic specialty practices such as Endocrinology, Pediatric Endocrinology, Bariatrics as well as Diabetes education, which makes for a highly meaningful collaborative care setting.”
Lipidology is the Scientific study of lipids (fats/cholesterol) and lipid-related disorders, and Lipidologists are experts in the field who play an important role in lipid management and lowering the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes. The spotlight also recognizes the TMH Metabolic Health Center for its impactful collaborative care setting. It’s rare for a practice to have so many intricately connected metabolic specialties together to provide high-quality care.
Dr. Ravilla was also recently grandfathered in as a Diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Lipidology (ABCL). Few lipidologists in the country have this status and the distinction highlights Dr. Ravilla’s dedication to the field of lipidology for life.
