    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    About AASLD

    Melissa Palmer, MD posted:
    AASLD is the leading non-profit organization of scientists and healthcare professionals committed to preventing and curing liver diseases. As the need for research is increasing, traditional funding sources are diminishing; grants from the NIH have remained stagnant; and private funding has been dropping consistently. These reductions in private and public support are especially significant since this alone may discourage many future researchers and physicians from pursuing careers in hepatology.
    The programs, educational grants, research awards and fellowships that AASLD supports are vital to finding new treatments for liver diseases and helping to offset the decline in funding available for liver disease research.
