About the Session

The global pandemic has affected patients with liver disease in unexpected ways. At this symposium, faculty review the effects of COVID-19 on the liver and how people with liver disease differ in their responses to COVID-19. They will review the latest data on COVID-19 treatments, COVID-19 prevention strategies including vaccines, and racial disparities revealed by this unprecedented epidemic.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify ways in which COVID-19 clinically manifests in patients with liver disease and cirrhosis
  • Compare the treatments for COVID-19
  • List available vaccine strategies to prevent COVID-19
