Hepatitis Conference

The annual National APAMSA Hepatitis Conference is held annually in different parts of the country. It is a unique opportunity for medical students and other professional health students from across the nation to come together. Participants network and learn from world renowned hepatologists and hepatitis advocates about the epidemiology, pathophysiology, prevention and treatment of hepatitis B and C as well as the advocacy and policy efforts to combat this disease. The goal of the conference is to serve as a catalyst for many diverse hepatitis B and C projects across the country.

This is a particularly valuable conference if you:

§ Are interested in learning about ways you can get involved with hepatitis B & C initiatives

§ Want to network with leading hepatologists from across the nation

§ Want to present a poster to share your hepatitis B & C outreach and/or research activities

§ Want to attend the AASLD Liver Meeting (participation includes free passes to attend AASLD)

This year, we are excited to announce that the 2021 Hepatitis B/C Conference will be taking place on Saturday, November 13th, 2021 from 9:00AM to 3:30PM PST/ 11:00AM to 5:30PM CST/ 12:00PM to 6:30PM EST. Due to the current climate of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will be held virtually this year, utilizing Hopin.

All keynote and speaker sessions will be streamed live, and we will provide opportunities for forming closer connections through our mentorship luncheon and small group breakout workshops. Research posters will be hosted online with the opportunity to showcase your work live as well as provide prerecorded presentation material. The abstract submission deadline is 10/15/2021. After the conference, recordings of all large group speaker sessions will be made available to attendees.
