The annual AASLD Liver Meeting® may be over, but your liver education can continue at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2020. By attending DDW, taking place May 2-5 in Chicago, IL, you can attend sessions about the newest advances and latest topics in liver diseases. These liver-related scientific sessions will take place in a variety of formats, including Clinical Symposia, Research Forums and State-of-the-Art Lectures. Member registration for DDW opens Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020, and general registration opens Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020.

To assist in your planning and navigation of DDW sessions, you can use DDW Tracks. DDW Tracks make it easy for you to find the sessions that are most relevant to you, and allow you to search all sessions by topic or theme.
