About Us

From the mountains to the ocean and the desert to the valleys – welcome to the Greater Los Angeles Division of the American Liver Foundation.

We are a national voluntary health agency providing research, education, and advocacy for those affected by liver-related diseases, including hepatitis. Our division covers all or parts of five counties with a population of nearly 21 million people. Liver disease affects millions and it doesn’t discriminate: touching all races, ages and genders. More than 600,000 Californians are infected with Hepatitis C which if four times more prevalent than HIV and there is no vaccine. Come join us in our challenge to see the day when liver disease is seldom found, easily cured, and when liver transplants are a thing of the past.
