For Patients

The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) is the leading organization of scientists and health care professionals committed to preventing and curing liver disease. 

We understand the importance and deeply value the voices of our patient and advocate community. We’re partnering with the patient community to better inform our work to improve health outcomes, and we are committed to collaborating and facilitating connections so we can create synergies with the work that you do. 

The Liver Meeting offers patients and advocates so much this year. In addition to expert speakers, there will be many opportunities to network with your peers while exchanging ideas during exclusive events, individual chats, and immersive sessions.  Get to know each other in the digital lounge for the TLMdX attendees.

Register as a Patient or Patient Advocate

For the Patient Community, we are offering many community, and physician-led sessions and networking opportunities to connect patients, advocates, and healthcare professionals.  Patients and advocates can learn about the latest science through abstract tours, attend special sessions, and participate in educational sessions.  This special track is designed to offer maximum interactive opportunities to ask questions, provide feedback and have discussions with the entire hepatology community. Please contact if you require special registration consideration.
