Event description

Description

This is a meeting organized by AIH Support for anyone affected by autoimmune hepatitis (AIH).

Come along and hear about the about the diagnosis and treatment of AIH. Speakers include:

Professor Gideon Hirschfield - professor of autoimmune liver disease Birmingham Univerity

Professor David Adams - professor of hepatology Birmingham university

Jill Johnson - Dietitian - liver unit Queen Elizabeth Hospital

As well as getting up to the minute information on AIH and ongoing research this is a great opportunity to ask these experts lots of questions and most importantly meet others affected by AIH and share experiences.

Partners and carers are of course welcome.

The meeting is in the Education Centre at the hospital. Once you come in the main entrance you will see some stairs - the balcony where we are congregating is up those stairs. There is a lift just behind the information desk. The people staffing the information desk will also know where we are so do just ask them if you get lost. Here are directions to the hospital which includes public transport and parking details.

Thanks to a grant from Dr Falk Pharma UK Ltd we are in a position to provide drinks and sandwiches. Tea/coffee will be available from 1200 but some of us will be there before that so if you arrive early do come on up and talk to us!
