Community Education Programs are delivered by trained health educators and are intended to provide an overview of specific topics in the area of liver disease and wellness. Community Education Programs are basically the same across the country regardless of where they are delivered, although content may be modified slightly to suit specific audiences and time constraints. These programs include:
All presentations include printed educational brochures and information on how to identify local resources.
The American Liver Foundation hosts a wide range of fundraising events that bring local communities together in support of our mission.
Focusing on hepatitis C (HCV), and addressing hepatitis A, hepatitis B, this program is offered to hospitals, detox centers, prisons and community-based organizations which provide services for addiction and substance abuse. We cover information about the liver, disease risk factors, prevention, coping with the challenges of living with hepatitis and advances in treatment. The program also addresses stigma related issues as a result of having a HCV diagnosis.
The American Liver Foundation offers a general liver education program for adults seeking to understand how the liver functions and the causes of and risk factors and treatments for the most prevalent liver diseases. The program is offered to adult community groups including civic organizations, hospitals and other community settings and can also be part of corporate wellness programs.
Our Youth Education Initiative is an interactive liver wellness education program targeted to elementary, middle, high school and college students. The program educates students about the liver and the actions they can take to maximize their liver health and prevent liver disease.
The Program has three components:
Each presentation is age appropriate concentrating on issues which help educate children, adolescents and young adults about how their liver functions, types of liver diseases, risk factors and ways to keep their livers healthy. By participating in this program, young people can achieve a greater awareness and understanding of the liver’s importance, maximize their liver health and be an integral part of preventing the spread of liver disease.
Our Community Outreach & Education Manager is available to present these programs as well as a cadre of trained volunteer speakers. We will make every attempt to honor all requests.
