The Medical Advisory Committee of the American Liver Foundation’s (ALF) Great Lakes Division will celebrate Liver Awareness Month by hosting their first annual Liver Symposium at the Stonegate Conference Center on October 25, 2014. The symposium, which is open to the public and free of charge for registered participants, provides a unique opportunity for liver disease patients, their families, the general public and healthcare providers to connect with accomplished liver specialists to increase their knowledge about liver diseases.

The program will open with an introduction from the Great Lakes Division Board President Dr. Donald Jensen, followed by the keynote address from Dr. Steven Flamm of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The opening session will be followed by breakouts, each featuring a series of lectures presented by leading experts in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, transplant surgery and infectious diseases. Healthcare professionals will have the opportunity to earn CMEs in their accredited breakout sessions. In breakouts geared towards the general public, the Symposium will provide an opportunity for liver disease patients to participate in open discussions and question and answer sessions with top medical professionals.
