  • Overview

    This interactive symposium aims to position gastroenterologists to improve patient care and outcomes by increasing their awareness of NAFLD/NASH and enhancing their ability to engage patients with NAFLD in the clinical care pathway. Expert faculty will take a deep dive into late-stage clinical trials to address unmet clinical needs and the potential for new agents to address them. Gastroenterologists will benefit from reviewing the safety and efficacy data, as it will help prepare them to quickly integrate new agents into their practice when these agents become available.
