Message from Chief Loren Laine, MD

November 2023

Dear Colleagues,

November is a busy month for Yale Digestive Diseases. Our section shines brightly at The Liver Meeting each fall, with many of our faculty involved in program planning as well as presenting their research and giving invited lectures. I also want to congratulate our newly elected members of AASLD Special Interest Groups (SIGs), who join our section’s long tradition of service and leadership in the AASLD (see more below).

With Thanksgiving around the corner and December fast approaching, I want to wish everyone a happy and peaceful holiday season. I hope you enjoy reading about our latest research, events, and awards. It’s a great pleasure to work with such outstanding colleagues in our section and to showcase some of their accomplishments and activities below.
