Supporting patients managing high cholesterol during the COVID-19 pandemic

April 2, 2020

To our community,

As we find our “new normal” in the shadow of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), I wanted to take a moment to touch base with you. In this time of uncertainty, we recognize how important it is to find ways to adapt your daily lives to help manage your health and any ongoing treatment needs.

Through our Take Cholesterol to Heart community, we offer several resources that may help you stick with your cholesterol management regimen during these changing times. Additional information can be found here.

Most importantly, now is the time to stick with your doctor-prescribed medication. If you’re having challenges with your treatment regimen, don’t just stop. Consulting a healthcare provider remotely via telehealth may be an option until you can visit your doctor again in person. Contact your insurance company to find out more about telehealth.

We are continuing to assess the implications of COVID-19, but our commitment to the health and safety of you and our communities drives every decision that we make.

Take care, and we are thinking of you during this tumultuous time.

Yours truly,

Ben Stakely Chief Executive Officer and President Signature
