Educational Programs & Special Events

Educational Programs

The Pacific Coast Division is your local source for educational programs regarding liver disease. Programs are educational and free of charge. Current programs that are being conducted in our community are:

LIVER WELLNESS: This program incorporates key strategies to keep one's liver healthy. The program also offeres specific action plans to maximize liver health, which engages and motivates the audience toward future healthy lifestyle changes. The 60-minute program is a highly effective corporate wellness program that can be held at any company, corporation or facility that is concerned with their employees' overall well-being.

VIRAL HEPATITIS: This education program is targeted towards individuals who have or are at high risk of hepatitis C infection. The program educates participants about the liver, liver disease, specifically hepatitis C, treatment options and other disease management strategies.

LOVE YOUR LIVER: This program is an interactive liver wellness education program targeted to elementary, middle and high school students, as well as young adults. The program educates students about the liver and the actions they can take to maximize their liver health and prevent liver disease.
