EASL continues to go global with the 'Best of EASL 2016' series

 

BEST OF EASL condenses the most cutting-edge science and education from the world’s premier hepatology society into one program.

As Prof. Chan states, "There is no geographic boundary on knowledge".

EASL has a strong tradition of producing top quality education and sharing the latest news and updates in Hepatology across the world. Nevertheless, financial, logistical and regulatory constraints often prevent qualified hepatologists from accessing all of EASL education and science offerings, especially when living and travelling from outside of Europe.

EASL wants to address this issue by strengthening its partnership in science and education on a global scale. In an effort to expand its international reach, the Best of EASL program was launched as a new educational initiative aimed at delivering the best of its science to clinicians and scientist in key strategic locations around the world. Pilot events were held in 2015 in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and South Africa and will be extended to other regions of the world in 2016.

Throughout 2016, EASL will be travelling to the following destinations;

BEST OF EASL - SUNTEC CITY, SINGAPORE 27-28 MAY, 2016
