Great Lakes Division

The American Liver Foundation Great Lakes Division works continually to fulfill our mission to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease. The Great Lakes Division is proud to serve the patients, families, and medical professionals of Illinois and Michigan.

2016 marks our 40th anniversary! Help us celebrate this milestone by joining us for one of our signature events or programs!

Join us for a new webinar! "Accessing and Managing Treatment: Benefits of Working with a Specialty Pharmacy" will take place on Thurs. 5/28, 12-1pm ET.

Celebrate those affected by liver disease

Our virtual Celebration Wall is a way that we honor and commemorate patients who have been affected by liver disease. It is our hope that the Celebration Wall will serve to fight the stigma that has forever plagued liver disease and serve as a beacon of hope to those still battling liver disease.

To be featured on the Celebration Wall or to have a family member/friend featured, please email ejensen@liverfoundation.org or call 312-377-9030.

Every day, we are working to better fulfill our mission and enhance our advocacy for liver disease and liver health.
