Proud to Serve on The Global NASH Council

Center for Outcomes Research in Liver Disease

It is my honor to have been selected as an endocrinologist to serve on the Global NASH Council, a professional organization composed primarily of hepatologists. It is known that fatty liver disease is the liver manifestation of type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome and that endocrinologists are the front line for fatty liver diagnosis and treatment.

The Global NASH Council was formed to bring together international experts to discuss, collaborate and contribute to the field of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD and NASH). Because of the global nature of NAFLD and NASH, it is important to include perspectives from different regions of the world, assess the clinical and economic impact of NASH based on the realities of each country and region. Meetings of the Global NASH Council are designed to discuss new topics in the field of NASH and design joint projects that will contribute to the understanding of this important liver disease. The Council members also form selected collaborative teams to address specific issues such as region-specific economic impact of NAFLD.
