The landscape of hepatology is rapidly changing. AASLD is not only keeping up, we are leading the way. As the needs of our members – and the larger hepatology community – evolve, so do our strategies to meet those needs.

In November 2018, AASLD's Governing Board approved a bold new strategic plan to ensure AASLD continues to offer the most value to its members and to the hepatology community as a whole.

Below are the six pillars of AASLD's strategic plan.

Engagement and Networking

From SIG online communities to in-person meetings, AASLD helps you maximize your opportunities to network, collaborate and grow your career.

Accelerating Progress

As the leader in research discovery and advances in care, AASLD is investing in more research (through AASLD Foundation) and developing quality metrics so we can reduce the burden of liver disease.

Investment in our Mission

Our mission is to advance and disseminate the science and practice of hepatology and to promote liver health and quality patient care — and we are creating new ways to do that through innovative education, new programs and strategic partnerships.

Just like our members, we understand the importance, and value the voices, of the patient community. We're partnering with patients and patient groups to better inform our work to improve health outcomes.
