President's Message July 2019

Dear Friends and Fellow Hepatophiles,

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. The HPHS newsletter is back for a mid-year update. The results of the steatohepatitis survey have been compiled and posted on the website. The responses demonstrate the spectrum of terminology and concepts regarding fatty liver disease among our colleagues, and highlights the areas where additional studies and discussions can help to make the terminology and practice more homogeneous.

In the past few newsletters, I have introduced the Education, Membership, Newsletter and Executive committees. In recent years, the Website committee led by Dora Lam-Himlin and assisted by three committee members has played a crucial role in transforming the Society by maintaining the website, enabling online payment of dues and maintaining the Society’s presence in the Twitter world.

The HPHS Twitter account has expanded to more than 550 followers. I encourage you to follow the Society’s Twitter account and send any suggestions regarding the activities of the committee. The website is being redesigned and an improved version will be launched soon.  

I urge all members to actively participate in the Society’s endeavors by volunteering for a committee, contributing to case of the month, sharing ideas for member surveys and sending your feedback.



Regards 
Sanjay Kakkar, MD
President, Hans Popper Society
