In my association with doctors from the AASLD, I’ve seen such a genuine desire to make the best choices for each patient’s individual needs. They compile numbers from all over the country to try and find a trend in symptoms and side effects. These men and women have devoted their lives to studying liver disease. Recently, they held another webinar just to help us better understand COVID-19.

Su is a long time Hepatitis Advocate. She did her residencies at Georgetown and with the Epidemiology branch of the  Centers for Disease Control, (CDC).
