Steatohepatitis Project @ UCLA

Steatohepatitis Project @ UCLA is a student-run organization proposing community liver screenings to catch fatty liver before inflammation and scarring of the liver becomes irreversible, and, most importantly, to provide this screening to vulnerable populations throughout LA where individuals experience higher social risks. We will begin with screening for risk factors, and advocate for the expansion of portable FibroScans to detect fatty liver in the community. Our organization will educate on the dangers of this "silent epidemic" and generate funding and physician support to establish cirrhosis as a high risk condition at hospitals.
