Swiss NASH Day
Swiss NASH Day is dedicated to increasing awareness about NASH and is scheduled the same week as the international NASH day. The Swiss NASH foundation is organising an event that will bring together different scientific and medical experts to discuss the latest advances in NASH research, treatment and patient management.
NASH is a worldwide epidemic disease affecting over 115 million people. Still, NASH remains an underdiagnosed and consequently an underreported disease. Untreated NASH may lead to cirrhosis, liver cancer and liver transplantation.
The Swiss NASH Foundation is a non-for-profit organization committed to the dissemination of knowledge and raising of awareness about NASH. Through funding cutting edge research projects and increasing the knowledge and awareness about NASH, the foundation aims at contributing to treatment discovery as well as improving the patients’ quality of life.
