Ask the Expert Pediatric Liver Disease Conference San Francisco 2018

The heart of the American Liver Foundation’s mission is to educate the community about the dangers of liver diseases, to advocate for healthy eating habits, and to connect patients and their families to qualified doctors, specialists and pharmacists. To achieve these goals, we are holding a seminar with a panel of pre-eminent specialists in the field of liver disease. The specialists will disseminate information about liver disease prevention and the newest treatments. Afterwards the public will have a chance to ask questions. The event is free to the patients, their families and general public.
