In observance of Hepatitis Awareness Month, I am posting to this blog daily, highlighting websites and organizations that are doing remarkable work educating the public, raising awareness, and making a difference in the lives of those affected by viral hepatitis. I suggest you visit each site, and find out what they are doing, how you can stay informed, and possibly help with their efforts.
The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) is the leading scientific and professional organization in the U.S. committed to preventing and curing liver disease. AASLD hosts an annual meeting called The Liver Meeting and publishes the HCV Guidelines (in conjunction with the Infectious Diseases Society of America). In an effort to increase public awareness and funding regarding liver disease, AASLD lobbies in Washington. AASLD provides information for patients, but if you are up for it, read their publications.
