Screening College Students for Hypercholesterolemia.
Faigel, Harris C.
Journal of American College Health, v40 n6 p272-75 May 1992
Describes one college's mandatory mass cholesterol screening for new students. Each year, over 30 beginning students with unknown hypercholesterolemia were detected. The program suggests that mass screening efficiently and economically identifies students who would benefit from cholesterol reduction, a modifiable risk in coronary artery disease. (SM)
