Welcome to the Texas Division of the American Liver Foundation. We are proud to serve the Texas community by promoting liver health and disease prevention through research, education, and advocacy for those affected by liver-related diseases, including hepatitis and fatty liver disease.
Since 2000, the Texas Division has served Greater Houston by helping those impacted by liver disease through outreach and free educational programs. In 2015, the Dallas Chapter of the Texas Division was established and in 2018, thanks to the outreach of a dedicated volunteer who lost her father to liver cancer, the Texas Division partnered with Power to Cure to launch the first community-based Liver Life Walk in San Antonio.
Today, the Texas Division leadership includes 15 board members and 33 medical advisory committee members in Houston and Dallas and thousands of annual volunteers and supporters.
In addition to the new Liver Life Walk San Antonio, the Texas Division hosts two successful annual Liver Life Walks in Houston and Dallas that involve hundreds of current and former patients, caregivers, transplant recipients, cancer survivors, family members, doctors, nurses, and folks who want to walk to support others. Images from our 2018 Dallas Walk and our upcoming Houston Walk flier are below.
The Texas Division also produces two annual culinary fundraising dinners in Houston and Dallas where a total of 30 chefs are engaged to create a culinary delight for the philanthropic-minded to raise over $100,000 in support of local programs in each city.
and, thanks to the support of our volunteer physicians, nurses, and other friends, the Texas Division produces several well-attended educational programs in the Houston and Dallas areas that engage hundreds of individuals every year who have an interest in learning more about liver disease and prevention. We have shared a couple samples below from last year’s educational programming.
Locally, funds received throughout the year from individuals, corporations and foundations, allow us to continue to support the our community through a variety of means including the following:
- free liver wellness educational programs
- k-12 outreach
- professional and patient liver updates throughout the year
- informational packets for patients, friends and family
- support group referrals
- research funding
- medical referrals
- advocacy efforts
- and much more
The mission of the American Liver Foundation is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.
