At ILC 2020, doctors, patients, allied health professionals and policymakers will discuss the important new insights and information to help them combat liver disease. Attendees will hear the latest epidemiological and real-world data on how physical inactivity and poor diets contribute to liver disease and gain a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanisms. Leading clinicians and researchers in the field will talk about the kinds of everyday life changes that can help or even reverse liver disease, and update on treatment options.

The congress will also update attendees on EASL’s important policy and advocacy work, providing evidence and support to governments and international organizations implementing laws and policies that promote health in daily life.

Improved format at ILC 2020:

After the success of the hepatology arena in 2019, it has been decided to stage two arenas in 2020 where interactive and engaging sessions will be held. Sessions too have been rearranged to offer the best experience for delegates avoiding topic overlap. Upon popular request, there will be more “pros and cons” sessions and extended time for poster viewing.
