Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and the Emirates Gastroenterology and Hepatology Society (EGHS) together, announce the inaugural CONNECT program between hepatologists, infectious disease doctors, liver surgeons, and other health care providers in UAE with experts from the USA. We recognize many physicians in the UAE are interested in cutting edge research findings presented at AASLD The Liver Meeting® but very few can make it to the meeting. 

The program will take place in Dubai over a span of 2 days, June 12-13, 2020. Scientific sessions on both days will include presentations of latest research data from The Liver Meeting® 2019 by AASLD faculty, lectures on liver disease management by local faculty, highlighting similarities and differences in practice in the UAE and the USA. We expect many doctors in the region will want to participate in this meeting to learn about the latest developments in liver disease research, to interact with colleagues and to share experiences in clinical management and conduct of clinical research.

AASLD is a leading organization focused on advancing the science and practice of hepatology. Content delivered from our programs and journals, combined with local perspectives from experts in the UAE, will facilitate the incorporation of cutting edge research data into practice and offer the best possible atmosphere to encourage collaborative research between UAE and American physicians, surgeons and researchers. We hope that you will join us. Register today.
