For Patients Caregiver Tips and Advice For Medical Professionals

About Us

Liver disease mirrors the population we serve – it cuts across ethnic, racial, and gender lines. The Greater New York Division of the American Liver Foundation is dedicated to our diverse community in both New York and North Jersey. We provide a wide variety of services including support groups, liver wellness education programs, a national helpline, exciting fundraising events, and volunteer opportunities. Founded in 1997, the Division has successfully served thousands of liver disease patients and their families.

Please visit our site often to learn about fundraising and program events that we have planned for the months and year ahead, as well as ways to get involved. The Division’s goal is to serve the New York State and Northern New Jersey areas, and volunteers from these areas are always needed and welcome. Our outstanding record of achievement would not be possible without people from the community, like you. If you are interested in volunteering, please call (212) 943 -1059 or email Greater New York Division.
