The Best of AASLD is part of our signature two-hour session, the Best of DDW 2019, presented each year on Tuesday. Moderated by Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) Council Chair, Grace H. Elta, MD, AGAF, FASGE, a discussant from each of the societies reviewed the top presentations of the latest, best and most thought-provoking research presented all week.
