2nd Global Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) Congress is organized by Global Engage Ltd and will be held from Feb 25 - 26, 2019 at London Heathrow Marriott Hotel, London, England, United Kingdom. Synopsis: • +40 presentations from industry and academic leaders • +7 hours of dedicated networking time • Expert-led roundtables and interactive panels Attracting experts working in all areas of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, the conference will examine the latest research and development in pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of the disease. An increasing number of people are being diagnosed with the nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) each year, and the primary method of treatment is weight loss. With no approved medicines on the market, the drug development race is intensifying. The pathogenesis of NASH is still not fully understood, and definitive diagnostic methods are invasive, so development has been slow. There are, however, promising developments in research that will hopefully bolster drug development and other methods of treatment. Examples of such developments include improved in vivo liver models, non-invasive diagnostic biomarkers and a better understanding of the disease’s mechanisms. This year’s congress will focus on these exciting advancements, as well as on the challenges of preclinical and clinical research in NASH. There will also be a session on business development/regulation and a showcase of the most promising therapeutics in development. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Menopause in the Workplace is organized by The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) and will be held on Feb 26, 2019 at The Royal Society of Medicine, London, England, United Kingdom. One in four women currently going through menopause have considered leaving work due to their symptoms. Some studies also suggest that some work environments may make menopause symptoms worse. Despite this, the majority of women are unwilling to disclose menopause related health problems to their line managers due to the taboo surrounding the subject and the fact that there is a lack of interest in addressing the subject in many workplaces. This event addresses the issues working women face throughout menopause, with consideration to the influence employers have on women's economic participation and the potential impact of the secrecy surrounding menopause has on the workplace and wider labour market. Topics : • How women experiencing menopause can be better supported at work • Measuring the economic costs of menopause • Evidence gaps relating to the menopause transition and the workplace Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
