In observance of Hepatitis Awareness Month, I am posting to this blog daily, highlighting websites and organizations that are doing remarkable work educating the public, raising awareness, and making a difference in the lives of those affected by viral hepatitis. I suggest you visit each site, and find out what they are doing, how you can stay informed, and possibly help with their efforts.
The American Liver Foundation (ALF) was created in 1976 by the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD). Their mission is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease. The ALF has served patients, families and others affected by all types of liver diseases. The ALF has many local chapters, some of which have done some stellar work. Getting involved with a local chapter of ALF can make a huge difference in your community.
