Best of EASL - Brazil 06-08 October, 2016

III Northeast Symposium of SBH in Brazil (III Simpósio de Hepatologia do Nordeste)

Description

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

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.

EASL has secured 3 excellent speakers and experts in the field to present at the SBH Fortaleza meeting:

  • Frederik Nevens (Belgium) Patients with Liver Diseases at the ICU
  • Helena Cortez-Pinto (Portugal) Alcohol & NAFLD
  • Heiner Wedemeyer (Germany) Non-invasive & HCV
