About Our Division and Office

A Message From the Great Lakes Division Staff

Liver disease is non-discriminatory and affects 1 in 10 Americans. It affects individuals without any consideration of age, gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic background. It may be inherited, and as liver diseases generally are a-symptomatic, many are unaware that they need to seek medical consultation. A diagnosis of liver disease can be overwhelming and the American Liver Foundation’s Great Lakes Division can provide valuable resources to help you and your loved ones as you navigate through your medical course of action.

We are proud to serve Illinois and Michigan. Our mission is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease. We are supported by a passionate Board of Directors and guided by medical experts who serve on our Medical Advisory Committee. Their expertise is instrumental as we develop our educational lecture series for patients, the general public and healthcare professionals. We are grateful that these specialists in liver diseases and health volunteer their time to present the latest information to our audiences.

As patient advocates, we connect with our state government officials, advocating for improved legislative policy on behalf of Illinoisans and Michiganders who are affected by the over 100 forms of liver related diseases. Events throughout our region are designed to increase awareness, provide a place for the caring community to congregate, and raise the funds necessary to fulfill our mission.

We are honored to be able to partner with organizations within the communities to bring free Hepatitis C (HCV) testing to the general public. Our collaborations help us reach more and more people each day.

There are many ways you can help us spread the word! Visit and like our Facebook page, retweet on our behalf, volunteer at our events, intern with us for a semester, introduce us to new partners and sponsors, become a patient advocate, and donate if you are able. More importantly, tell everyone you know that the ALF Great Lakes Division is here to help.
