Division News & Updates

2015 ALF Upper Midwest Division News:

The Upper Midwest Division had a great 2015, but we are ready to tackle 2016 and liver disease in full force! Liver disease is one of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States. As of 2015, 25% of Americans have been diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease, 10% being children. These numbers are continually increasing and it’s time we make a change. It's time WE make a difference! 2016 will bring you plenty of new events and fundraising opportunities, but we have one new event yet to introduce in 2015. Channel your inner foodie and check out Harvest Gathering below! Stay tuned for our new and improved LLW Warrior Run/Family & Corporate Challenge to be introduced in Summer 2016… Thank you for joining our cause and fight, your supported is appreciated and felt by millions.

Division Update:

We are also excited to announce that Dr. T.C Gamblin of Medical College of Wisconsin is being promoted to the National Level where the Upper Midwest Division will be represented for the first time in ALF history. Although he will remain a prominent part of our division, he serves now as a member on the 2016 American Liver Foundation National Board of Directors. Our new Board of Directors Chair for Wisconsin is Linda Schreiner. Linda has been a focal and vital board member for the past few years; we are both extremely excited and lucky to have her! In addition to a personal connection with liver disease, she has vast experience with non-profit foundation and events as well. 2016 is an exciting year for the Upper Midwest Division, come in and join the ride!
