2017 International Meeting on Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease 

Scientific Co-Chairs

Eberhard L. Renner, University of Manitoba
Brent A. Neuschwander-Tetri
, Saint Louis University School of Medicine

In parallel with the obesity/diabetes epidemic, the incidence and prevalence of NAFLD continues to rise in Canada and elsewhere. While NAFLD leads to an increasing health care burden, our understanding and the therapeutic options remain limited. It is therefore imperative that the level of knowledge and understanding of this liver disease be increased. This will require a multi-pronged approach to adequately address it from prevention, diagnosis, management, treatment and research perspectives.

Upon completion of the conference, participants will be able to:
  •  Recognize the current status of epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, clinical presentation, and therapy of NAFLD.
  •  Identify gaps in our current understanding of NAFLD that need to be filled by future research.

The 1.5-day education program aims to attract an estimated audience of 100 attendees with the target audience being

• Clinicians (of any background) interested in NAFLD
• Young investigators with an academic interest in NAFLD 
• Scientists interested in NAFLD

“This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and approved by Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver.”
