Dr. David Mymin founded the Lipid Clinic in 1989. He was an outstanding cardiologist who had an impactful career that spanned over 60 years. Through those years, he served in a number of academic and community leadership roles, making innumerable contributions to his field. In particular, he was a national and international leader in Phytosterolemia, driven by his desire to help a large cohort located in Manitoba. His impact on generations of Manitobans was immeasurable. In 2021, the Lipid Clinic was renamed to honor his decades of work and to carry on his vision.
