The Global Hepatitis Summit 2018 was held in Toronto, Canada. It brought together top clinicians and organizations together from around the world to highlight the importance of national and global public health initiatives and focus on hepatitis and other non-viral liver diseases to reach the WHO goal to eradicate hepatitis by 2030. The Vancouver Infectious Diseases Centre held a booth at the No Hep Village and VIDC showcased our posters on our updated research. Dr. Conway also gave symposia presentations during the four -day conference.
The 10th Annual Gala of Red Ribbons 4 Life Foundation (RR4L) took place on Dec 3rd, 2017. Dr. Brian Conway was the guest speaker for this event.
