Annual NASH Day

NASH Day is an annual event that raises public awareness for NASH (Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis), advancements in treatment, and ongoing research and clinical trials. The event is hosted by the NAFLD Research Center team and features oral and poster presentations from our investigators about their latest findings. NASH Day also includes patient testimonials, in which a panel of patients offers their first-hand experience of living with NASH and receiving treatment at UCSD. In 2022, our presenters included Dr. Veeral Ajmera, Dr. Monica Tincopa, and Dr. Daniel Huang. Dr. Ajmera discussed the impact of type 2 diabetes and obesity on NAFLD, as well as the prevalence of advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis in a diabetes cohort. Next, Dr. Tincopa discussed the importance of diet and exercise in NAFLD prevention and resolution. Oftentimes, a dedicated exercise regimen and a well-structured diet are some of the most effective ways to avoid liver disease. Lastly, Dr. Huang discussed the importance of cohorts toward improving the management of NASH. Full-length recordings of the presentations have been uploaded to the NAFLD Research Center YouTube Channel and are available below.
