Carrie Beth Chapman, MD, of Appleton Cardiology, a part of ThedaCare, will explain what HDL, LDL and total cholesterol numbers mean and offer tips on diet and lifestyle changes people can make to bring cholesterol levels back into a healthy range.

The free session begins at 6:30 p.m. on Tues., Oct. 9, in the Pigeon River Room at New London Family Medical Center.
