Medical Advisory Committee

Associate Medical Advisory Committee (AMAC) is a mission focused body composed of allied liver health professionals working together to promote liver health and wellness. The group works to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease through education and outreach initiatives. The AMAC collaborates with the ALF to deliver the educational programs of liver health and wellness that support the general public, patients, and professionals of our community.


Programs

Programs of the AMAC and the American Liver Foundation are to carry out the mission of promoting education to professionals, liver patients, patients’ families, and the general public. Promoting liver education supports the prevention, the treatment, and the cure of liver disease.

There are three ‘AMAC Lead’ programs that are directed by the AMAC, and assisted by the American Liver Foundation, to support the fight against the cause of liver disease: The Hepatology & Liver Transplantation Nursing Conference, Healthy Liver – Healthy Lives, and the Hepatitis C Symposium.

Hepatology & Liver Transplantation Nursing Conference
The Hepatology & Liver Transplantation Nursing Conference is an annual program directed toward professional education. This program’s main purpose is to provide education on hepatology and liver transplant topics. The target audiences for this comprehensive, region-wide conference are RNs, CRNPs, CPNPs, GI Nurses, Transplant Coordinators, Primary Care Nurses, School Nurses, Nursing Students, and Insurance Provider Case Managers.

The Hepatology & Liver Transplantation Nursing Conference leadership requires a ‘program chair’ and a ‘program vice-chair.’ These leadership roles are to cooperate with the American Society of Perianesthesia Nurses (ASPAN) for the accreditation of the conference.

Healthy Liver – Healthy Lives
The Healthy Liver – Healthy Lives Symposium targets liver patients, families, and the general public. The purpose of the program is to inform and update the audience on liver disease topics.

The Healthy Liver – Healthy Lives Symposium is an annual program that takes place at a healthcare facility. Program leadership requires two AMAC members to chair and co-chair the program.

Hepatitis C Symposium
The Hepatitis C Symposium is an educational program targeted to individuals with hepatitis C infection, the patients’ families, and the general public. The program provides important information on hepatitis C as well as treatment updates on hepatitis C.

The Hepatitis C Symposium is an annual program that takes place at a healthcare facility. This symposium requires at least one AMAC member to chair the program.
