High Impact Hepatology

December 2, 2023 @ 8:25 am - 2:15 pm

The practice of clinical Hepatology remains challenging for many gastroenterologists due to rapidly changing disease management paradigms and often complex, critically-ill patients. The 21st Annual High Impact Hepatology program is specifically designed to bring the latest information from national and international meetings to gastroenterology healthcare providers. Advances in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, alcohol induced liver disease, liver cancer, and liver transplantation will be discussed by the UNC Liver Center attending Hepatologists and invited speakers. This iteration of our meeting is designed to address practice gaps for the gastroenterologist, primary care physician, and advanced practice provider. We seek to de-mystify liver related care and bring practical advice and best-practice guidance to the general gastroenterologist and general internist.

Target Audience
