Leveraging Metabolic-Driven Treatment Strategies to Target the Origins of NASH

Join us for an interactive live symposium on the latest findings in NASH clinical management to leverage metabolic origins of NASH as they relate to obesity, T2D, and dyslipidemia. Manal Abdelmalek, MD, MPH, Rohit Loomba, MD, MHSc, and Brent Tetri, MD will provide expert insights on NASH pathophysiology, early therapeutic interventions to improve metabolic processes, and emerging therapeutic targets in late-phase investigations.
