AASLD's The Liver Meeting 2017 - American Association For The Study Of Liver Diseases

Overview

Event Overview:

AASLD will see you in Washington DC, where more than 9,500 hepatologists and hepatology health professionals from across the nation and around the world will gather at The Liver Meeting® to exchange the latest liver diseases research, discuss treatment outcomes, and interact with colleagues at the annual must-attend even in the science and practice of hepatology.

What is The Liver Meeting®?

At its core, The Liver Meeting® is the place to get the state-of-the-art science in the field of hepatology.

But it's much more than that. Plenary and parallel sessions provide the avenue for specialists to learn about cutting-edge research. Courses, workshops, and symposia provide clinicians with the latest in treatment techniques and options. Exhibits and poster sessions naturally deliver needed networking opportunities for attendees of all experience levels. For those considering a specialty in hepatology, the meeting provides an unparalleled forum in which to network and make an informed decision about a career in hepatology.

Attendee Information:

The Liver Meeting has grown from the spontaneous gatherings of an insular group of like-minded colleagues into the premier educational event for liver specialists worldwide.

Whether you are a researcher, educator, practicing clinician, nurse, mid-level provider, or in training, there is a place for you at The Liver Meeting.

Exhibitor Information:

Reach Thousands of Liver Disease Specialists from Across the Nation and Around the World

During The Liver Meeting 2017 - the 68th Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases - thousands of hepatologists and hepatology health professionals from across the nation and around the world will gather in Washington, DC to exchange the latest liver disease research, discuss treatment outcomes, and interact with colleagues at the annual, must-attend event in the science and practice of hepatology.

AASLD is the leading organization focused solely on advancing the science and practice of hepatology. The Liver Meeting defines the cutting edge in the study and treatment of liver and biliary diseases and offers the best possible atmosphere to discuss groundbreaking research and progressive clinical treatments.

About AASLD:

AASLD is the leading organization of scientists and health care professionals committed to preventing and curing liver disease. AASLD was founded in 1950 by a small group of leading liver specialists (including Hans Popper, Leon Schiff, Fred Hoffbauer, Cecil Watson, Jesse Bollman, and Sheila Sherlock, to name a few) to bring together those who had contributed to the field of hepatology.

AASLD has grown to an international society responsible for all aspects of hepatology, and our annual meeting, The Liver Meeting®, has grown in attendance from 12 to more than 9,500 physicians, surgeons, researchers, and allied health professionals from around the world.
