A MESSAGE FROM the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the GREATER NEW YORK DIVISIONů.

I am so pleased to have joined the American Liver Foundation, Greater New York Division. I am happy to be partnering with our volunteer leadership and our Greater New York staff, Randa Adib and Jenna Adolph, moving forward to a future free of liver disease.

Our focus at the Greater New York Division is two-fold – and our priorities are interdependent! We raise money to fund our mission – it’s that simple! How do we raise our money? We do that through our Liver Life Walks, through our Challenge Teams, and through our annual Gala. EVERY DOLLAR raised through EVERY EVENT makes a difference. No donation is too small because collectively it all makes a difference! We put the dollars raised to good work – to our mission. We NEED to educate, fund research and advocate on issues related to liver health and wellness. We need to continue to make an IMPACT. We make an impact every day by educating people about good liver health, providing information, support and services to liver patients.

Thirty million people in the United States are living with a form of liver disease. That is one in ten people! That is why we do what we do!

I look forward to getting out in the community through our programs and our Walks and meeting many of you in the near future. In the meantime please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at any time at lgallipoli@liverfoundation.org or 212-943-1059.

Together we will make a difference!

Regards,

Lisa Gallipoli
