May is Hepatitis Awareness month. There’s a great way you can learn more about autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). Indiana University (IU) and the Autoimmune Hepatitis Association are hosting a special conference to share information and research about AIH with AIH patients, physicians, caregivers, and anyone with a desire to learn about this rare form of liver disease and hepatitis.
You can learn more about this exciting conference by joining the Autoimmune Hepatitis Research Network Facebook group:
You can register for this conference at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AIHA_Conf
Check out Indiana University’s Department of Medicine, Gastroenterology Hepatology, for additional information about IU’s Autoimmune Hepatitis Research Network and the AIH Patient Support and Education Weekend conference:
Dr. Craig Lammert, MD is an Assistant Research Professor and Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine in the IU Department of Medicine, Gastroenterology Hepatology. Dr. Lammert has been sharing AIH resources and facilitates the AIH discussions on the Autoimmune Hepatitis Research Network Facebook group page. If you are seeking AIH information from a reliable source, I can personally recommend the Autoimmune Hepatitis Research Network to you. Attending this conference would be a great way to gain first-hand knowledge about AIH, participate in the patient support discussions, meet other AIH patients for support and networking, and learn about the current AIH research being conducted at Indiana University.
Raise a little hepatitis awareness of your own during May by attending IU’s AIH Patient Support and Education Weekend Conference, May 16-17, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana and say “hello” to Dr. Lammert for me ;) .
