Conversations with an Expert, Ep 1: Dr. Lisa VanWagner

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the first episode of LFN's "7 Minutes with an Expert," a video-based interview series created to complement our existing material which currently includes written content and our 'Liver Talks' podcast. 

Each "7 Minutes with an Expert" episode will feature a faculty member whose area of expertise we believe is crucial for the education of our trainees. We won't always be featuring a hepatologist -- future episodes may include surgeons, pharmacists, nephrologists, social workers, physical therapists, and other disciplines!

In this first episode, Hersh Shroff (transplant hepatology fellow at Northwestern and one of the LFN Founders) interviews Dr. Lisa VanWagner, a transplant hepatologist at Northwestern, whose particular area of expertise is cardiovascular comorbidities in patients with liver disease. Enjoy!

Please feel free to share the video, comment and rate on Youtube, and send us any feedback you may have!
