The NLEC points to a number of success stories, including:
In recent months, NLEC officials report an increase in the number of families who want to get involved in NLEC's work, including the broadcasting ministry.
James Barnes, who had worked at KETC (Channel 9), the NLEC is attempting to upgrade its TV and radio offerings.
And, by early 1998, the NLEC plans to have in operation a satellite uplink that will feed educational, informational and inspirational programming to its radio stations.
Perhaps just as valuable is the networking that occurs between NLEC members.
Although the NLEC does not lobby Congress directly, individual members do.
NLEC members have met with congressional sponsors of crime bills to offer suggestions and to express their opinions on areas of particular concern.
However, Federal legislation represents merely one concern of the NLEC.
NLEC education efforts also address the significant challenges of recognizing and managing dyslipidemias in diverse patient populations, such as women, older adults, and patients with diabetes.
