Hepatic Encephalopathy


Published: April 7th, 2014

The American Liver Foundation invites you to participateinthe second of a four-part series of live webinars on hepatic encephalopathy (HE) to be held Wednesday, April 23, 2014. The program, Diagnosing and Treating HE: A Physician’s Perspective, isdesigned for patients and caregivers who need a better grasp of this complicated condition or want a clearer understanding about a specific HE-related issue.

HE is most often seen in people with chronic liver disease. It’s a major complication of cirrhosis – whether caused by viral hepatitis, fatty liver disease or long-term alcohol use. Learn about this complicated condition from a nationally-known expert in the field, Dr. Kimberly Brown. As Chief of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Henry Ford Hospital, Dr. Brown manages patients with complex liver disease both before and after liver transplantation. She will cover everything from triggers, symptoms and diagnosis of HE to treatment options and lifestyle adjustments. She will be available for a live question and answer session following her presentation.

The webinar will be held at 8:00 PM and 10:30 PM to accommodate both East and West coast participants. To register simply click the link below for the session you would like to register for:
