AASLD-ALEH Webinar: COVID-19 and the Liver in the Americas

When:  May 28, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (ET)


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, AASLD and the Latin American Association for the Study of the Liver (ALEH) have chosen to collaborate in helping our members throughout North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean, and the broader community, respond to increasing challenges and complexities.

AASLD and ALEH are jointly offering a COVID-19 webinar in Spanish on May 28, 2020. This webinar will provide attendees with information on the impact of COVID-19 on liver disease and transplantation in the Americas and the latest on COVID-19 management strategies related to the care of patients with chronic liver disease and pre- and post-transplantation. Faculty will also share strategies surrounding re-entry and the re-opening of clinics and hospitals for patients with liver disease.

Attendees can submit their COVID-19 questions in advance via this survey. Our experts will select a few questions to discuss during the webinar. Questions must be received by Tuesday, May 26, 11:59 am ET. Once the deadline passes, you can submit your questions directly to the speakers during the live webinar, time permitting.
