It’s with great anticipation that we announce the details of this coming year’s integrated education program.  Instead of a stand-alone CAHN Conference, CAHN has partnered with the Canadian Association of the Study of the Liver (CASL) and CanHep C to bring you the new Canadian Liver Meeting (CLM) happening February 9th to 11th at the Intercontinental Hotel in Toronto, Ontario.

 

Fees & What’s Included:

CASL has agreed to give CAHN members a FULL annual membership, for the reduced price of $200 plus tax (the price of their associate membership). Then, all joint CAHN/CASL members will receive complimentary access to the Canadian Liver Meeting + complimentary access to the 7TH Canadian Symposium on HCV!

CASL’s full membership includes:

  • Access to funding through awards, operating grants, and studentship funding opportunities.
  • Reduced registration fee to the Canadian Liver Meeting, CASL Single Topic Conference and other CME Programs (free to joint CASL-CAHN members).
  • Membership to the International Association for the Study of the Liver (IASL)
  • Free subscription to Annals of Hepatology (CASL)
