This seminar series will provide updates on the latest clinical research with a strong focus on patient care. Teams of local hepatology experts (physicians and mid-level providers) will provide an interdisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment in a classroom setting that stresses strong interaction between participants and faculty. Further, the interdisciplinary faculty promotes how optimal patient outcomes can be achieved through a team approach. To lower the barriers to participation and increase access, the program will be offered on Saturdays in ten cities throughout the country beginning in February 2016.
The seminar will concentrate on three key diseases of the liver and address the latest diagnosis, treatment and care management approaches for each. Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC), Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) and End Stage Liver Disease (ESLD). Local experts in clinical and research medicine will comprise the faculty in each location.
