2024 Canadian Liver Meeting

This year’s CLM conference took place in beautiful Toronto, Ontario. Attendees had the opportunity to engage in content from CAHN, as well as the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver and the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology. The meeting provided great networking opportunities within a diverse community to exchange knowledge, ultimately improving the quality of life among people affected by liver and GI-related diseases.

CAHN started the 2024 session on Saturday morning with Dr. Sunil Solomon, who presented an engaging and insightful update on the path towards HCV Elimination. The second session in CAHN’s program featured Dr. Hin Hin Ko presenting recent advances and new horizons in Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, as well as Dr. Ian Patton who shared insights on Obesity, Stigma and the Patient Journey. Our afternoon session highlighted Equity in Hepatitis and HIV Care with presentations by CAHN member Mia Biondi and Dr. Kate Greenaway, covering topics including gender diversity, special populations and accessibility.

To cap off CAHN’s program, our highly anticipated annual debate for 2024 was between Dr. Sean Wharton and Dr. Giada Sebastiani – with the topic ‘Only Specialists Should Prescribe for Weight Management’. The debate was well attended, with compelling and informative arguments given from both sides.
