Conference Description

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the most common blood-borne illness in the United States and is the leading cause of liver failure, liver cancer, and liver transplantation. Approximately half of persons with HCV have never been tested and do not know they are infected. This conference aims to educate and train healthcare providers in the best practices for screening, diagnosing, managing, and treating liver disease to eliminate viral hepatitis C in our communities. We will explore the nuances of providing care to individuals with liver disease, especially hepatitis C, through an intersectional lens.

Process to Getting a Virtual Booth

  1. Register and pay online.
  2. your content: You can decide what content you would like to include in your booth. The only content we absolutely require is a logo image and 120 word description of your company/product. Outside of that, it is up to you how much or how little you would like to show. When you do have your content together please send it directly to Pascale Kellens at pkelle@uw.edu. All content must be received no later than one week prior to the conference launch date
    Building of the booth: Due to our technology, UWCNE  has to build out your booth for you. Your booth will be built in a program called Articulate Rise. Your booth will be completed for your review 2-4 days prior to the conference.
  3. Booth review: Once your booth is built, UWCNE will send a link (4-2 days prior to the event) to watch your virtual booth and ask for adaptations if needed. If you fail to submit your materials 7 days prior to the conference, we cannot guarantee a booth review.
  4. Conference day: On the day of the conference attendees can view your booth alongside their speaker packets, evaluations and certificates!
