The AASLD has generated a COVID-19 Resources page for the community. You can view this page by clicking here.

There is also a site that highlights Clinical Insights for Hepatology and Transplant Providers during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and you can visit that page by clicking here. This document provides data on what is known about COVID-19, and how it may impact hepatologists and liver transplant providers and their patients. Our aim is to provide a basic template for the development of clinical recommendations and policies to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on liver patients and health care providers. This document will continue to evolve and be reviewed by the authors and AASLD Governing Board, and be revised and updated as needed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This  newly released document will be discussed in an upcoming webinar on other resources include an upcoming webinar: “COVID-19 and the Liver,” on Thursday, March 26th at 5:00pm EST.  Attendees can submit questions in advance via a survey by clicking here. Questions must be received by Wednesday, March 25, 11:59 am ET. Once the deadline passes, you can submit your questions directly to the speakers during the live webinar, time permitting.  You can register for the webinar by clicking here.
