Over two thirds of our entire population is affected by preventable liver diseases each year. The underlying cause of this national tragedy is the public's lack of understanding about the importance of the liver to one's health and well being. Most people are unknowingly participating in living damaging activities, many on a daily basis. Partners will have access to a a network of information, educational trainings, and resources carrying the message of liver health to family members, friends, colleagues, and your employees.
According to a recent report from the Institute of Medicine, one in 50 Americans, over 5 million individuals, are affected by hepatitis viruses, resulting in serious, life-threatening and preventable liver disease.
