Surfing NASH returns to review the 2023 Innovations in NAFLD Care Workshop (INCBCN) which concluded on 27 May in Barcelona. Conference founders and directors Jeff Lazarus and Jörn Schattenberg discuss highlights and takeaways of the event with Louise Campbell and Roger Green.

This conversation starts with a focus on the opening session which is titled The Fatal Triple and End-Organ Injury. Embedded in the recap is the topic of alcohol consumption and how it contributes to Fatty Liver disease.
