About Us

Welcome to our website. We hope you find all the information you need to support, learn and become part of the liver family in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.


Gandhi said “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”. Consider joining our boards, medical advisory committee (open to all healthcare professionals) and event committees. We would be honored to have you with us in our fight to raise awareness and funds for liver research, education and advocacy. As Gandhi said…lose yourself in our mission!
