I am particularly interested in: Cirrhosis: Improving Quality through Patient

It cannot be a coincidence that the moderator Michael Volk, MD has the same name as the Dr. Michael Volk in the liver transplant department at Loma Linda University Medical Center where my hepatologist is and I get treated.

Will there be recorded videos of this conference after the fact?



@PuallyHBV, Iā€™m sure its not a coincidence. (: If you register, you can have access to all of the recordings for several months. Iā€™m not quite sure if every talk is being recorded though. A lot of the patient track ones are going to be live and may not be recorded. There is a special patient rate of $50USD.
