Surfing the NASH Tsunami was there, with Jörn Schattenberg serving as event co-founder and Louise Campbell and Roger Green moderating sessions. This week’s episode is less a formal recap of the meeting than recollections of key moments and messages from the co-founders and Surfers.
This conversation wraps up the Surfers’ discussion of the conference. The co-hosts start with comments about pharma partners’ and patient advocates’ favorable reactions to the meeting and review many of the individual presentations. Louise shifts the focus of the conversation to the role of liver in overall metabolic wellness. Jörn notes that hepatologists are less likely to focus on liver fat as compared to fibrosis, and agrees that a broader focus on liver fat is important in the overall issue of metabolic health. The conversation ends with the group considering actions that might strengthen a successful 2022 conference when it recurs in 2023.
