The American Liver Foundation (ALF) facilitates, advocates, and promotes education, support, and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.
ALF's Fatty Liver Information Program (FLIP) is a national education effort targeted to the general public, as well as people with liver disease. The program facilitates a greater understanding of the liver and its functions, discusses the development and progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and offers a multi-disciplinary approach for maximizing liver health.
FLIP educates the general public and people with liver disease at various community-based settings.
FLIP programs are scheduled in collaboration with community-based agencies and are available all year.
The 45-minute program educates participants about the liver, its functions, and strategies to maximize liver health. The program specifically focuses on NAFLD which affects up to 25% of Americans. FLIP provides an overview of NAFLD and discusses its progression, management, prevention, and growing impact on children.
It is the American Liver Foundation’s hope that after participating in FLIP, participants will have a greater awareness and understanding of the liver’s importance and will take action to improve their liver health. Also, participants will share their knowledge with their family and children and play an active role in impacting the liver health of those around them.
