The purpose of the NASH Council is to shine a spotlight and coalesce an expanded set of stakeholders, in addition to hepatology, around the urgency of developing mechanisms for quantifying and addressing the silent epidemic of fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steteohepatitis (NASH) in the U.S. and abroad. Current estimates are that as many as 1 in 4 people already have NAFLD or NASH yet these conditions are underrecognized, underdiagnosed, and undertreated.
