  • Overview

    This chairman’s perspective highlights the role of gastroenterologists in improving patient care and outcomes and will increase their awareness of NAFLD/NASH. Dr. Kimberly Brown takes a deep dive into late-stage clinical trials to address unmet clinical needs and the potential for new agents to address these needs. Gastroenterologists will benefit from reviewing the safety and efficacy data, as it will help prepare them to quickly integrate new agents into their practice when they become available.
