A series of cardiovascular prevention guidelines on assessment of cardiovascular risk, lifestyle modifications that reduce risk, management of elevated blood cholesterol, and management of increased body weight in adults, based on rigorous, comprehensive, systematic evidence reviews, 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.
