ALF Attends 2019 AASLD Liver Meetings in Boston
The American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) founded the American Liver Foundation in 1976 to ensure that there was a national organization dedicated to raising awareness and providing liver education for patients and the general public.
The American Liver Foundation was pleased to represent the patient voice at last month’s AASLD annual Liver Meeting in Boston. Our educational exhibit booth welcomed hundreds of physicians from around the world who reviewed our materials and requested additional copies. We participated in a round table discussion on NASH, held a meeting of the Executive Committee of ALF’s National Medical Advisory Committee, heard presentations on some of the newest liver research and joined the AASLD’s event for patient advocacy organizations.
Many of our Divisions will be holding post-AASLD programs to share important findings with those who could not attend the Liver Meeting.
On the last night of the conference, we presented ALF’s Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award to David Brenner, MD, Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences and Distinguished Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. In this role, Dr. Brenner leads the School of Medicine, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of California, San Diego, and UC San Diego Health System. Dr. Brenner recognized and acknowledged a number of his colleagues, whom he holds in high regard because of their passion and dedication to science. He celebrated their contributions and the legacy that they helped him build, as he saw them as worthy of honor as well.
The awards reception attendees included physicians, representatives from ALF’s Corporate Council, National Medical Advisory Committee members and other conference participants as well as ALF staff.
