About the Session

The practice of hepatology has undergone profound shifts driven by new pathophysiologic insights which, in many cases, force us to rethink traditional medical dogma. This is also an era of profound progress in diagnostics and therapeutics. This program explores these seismic shifts to allow attendees to re-energize their practices and embrace new goals and objectives for treating many liver diseases.
