International NASH Day
Global Liver Institute

For the first time, Global Liver Institute's International NASH Day is endorsed by the major hepatology organisations in both the United States and Europe, the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and the European Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (EASL).

This year, International NASH Day convenes more than 80 partners in 25 countries to draw attention to the most pressing topics in the fight against NASH (Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis). Educational materials are available in 12 languages to increase awareness of NASH, which affects more than 115 million people and is expected to double by 2030.

"Mobilizing the global community on International NASH Day is even more important in 2020! Fatty liver disease, NASH and liver cancers didn’t stop endangering millions because of Covid-19 and our advocacy cannot either.” Donna Cryer, President and CEO, Global Liver Institute.

Today GLI hosts 6 cutting edge, multi-platform virtual panels featuring clinical, research, and patient experts in liver disease, immunology, nutrition, transplantation, oncology, and public health from around the world to describe current challenges and collaborate on innovative cross-disciplinary solutions to prevent, identify, treat, and improve the lives of people living with NASH.

In addition, partners are creating and amplifying messages on social media, conducting radio media tours, and holding complementary panels, podcasts, and educational workshops in the days surrounding June 12th. The virtual panels are scheduled to air starting at 7 am EDT through 4:15 pm EDT (1 pm to 10:15 pm CEST; 7 pm to 4:15 pm) and will offer diverse perspectives from 30 speakers.
