SIG meetings connect members with common goals and interests, providing a platform to network and participate in knowledge and resource sharing amongst peers. These meetings also serve as resources for INASL to develop and promote specialty-specific programs and services. The participation in these meetings is voluntary and self-selected by INASL members based on their interest in research and clinical medicine. These meetings will have focused discussions on burning issues in Hepatology by experts in these areas with active participation by the delegates. This year we have decided to have SIG meetings on hepatitis C, hepatitis B, alcoholic liver disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, drug induced liver disease, acute-on-chronic liver failure, hepatic encephalopathy and liver transplantation.
