Great Lakes Division

Many liver diseases are preventable or reversible and nearly all are less expensive to treat if detected early. This is why education and awareness are so important.

Join us in getting active and healthy! Join Team ALF and raise funds to fulfill the American Liver Foundation mission, which is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment, and cure of liver disease!

The American Liver Foundation Great Lakes Division offers three core community-based education programs on liver health and liver disease topics. Click here to learn more about our local educational programs.


The American Liver Foundation Great Lakes Division is part of a growing group of organizations joined to combat the skyrocketing out-of-pocket costs insurance companies place on lifesaving medications for people with chronic diseases. The Illinois Coalition for Access to Affordable Medication is on a mission to pass Illinois Senate Bill 3395 that would limit out-of-pocket costs for drugs – making vital medications affordable for those who need them.

Please visit the website – www.capthecopay.org – to learn more about the issue, join the coalition, and urge your Illinois Senator to support SB3395 to cap the co-pay
