About the Session

What are the public health implications of NAFLD in the U.S. and Europe? This session explores this timely question and more. Faculty will lead an in-depth discussion about societal behaviors that could be targeted to stem the NAFLD epidemic, including improving the obesogenic environment, limiting exposure to disease accelerating factors, and optimizing child health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the prevalence of NAFLD and expense attributable to this disease in the U.S. and Europe.
  • Identify societal behaviors that might be targeted to reduce exposures that promote NAFLD in adults.
  • Discuss the importance of limiting negative environmental exposures early in life to prevent NAFLD in adulthood.
