This lecture series event is designed for providers and clinicians of the SAPC network and will provide a detailed review of the negative health impacts of alcohol consumption,
especially as it relates to liver and pancreatic diseases. Specifically, this lecture will address the synergistic effect of alcohol and secondary risk factors such as diet and
viral hepatitis on the development and progression of alcohol associated liver and pancreatic diseases (ALPD). Based on scientific studies, the Southern California Research Center
for ALPD and Cirrhosis believes the best approach to understanding ALPD is to define the relationship between the diseases and these risk factors. This allows for the development
of more effective prevention and treatment measures to be utilized by healthcare professionals. Through this lecture, participants will learn about the risk factors for ALPD, gain
a deeper understanding of alcohol associated diseases in the community, and learn about current treatment options for alcohol use disorder and ALPD. A panel discussion with the
presenters will follow the presentations which will allow for greater discussion and deepening in knowledge, translating into meaningful encounters substance use providers may have
