Ask The Experts – Medical/Surgical Treatments of Liver Disease and Living with Chronic Liver Disease (postponed, new date TBA)

June 30 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The heart of the American Liver Foundation’s mission is to educate the community about the dangers of liver diseases, to advocate for healthy eating habits, and to connect patients and their families to qualified doctors, specialists and pharmacists. To achieve these goals, we are holding a seminar with a panel of pre-eminent specialists in the field of liver disease. The specialists will disseminate information about liver disease prevention and the newest treatments. Afterwards the public will have a chance to ask questions. The event is free to the patients, their families and general public.

When: Saturday, June 30, 2018

Time: 9:00am-12:00pm

Event Location: Children’s Hospital Colorado at 13123 E. 16th Ave. Aurora, Colorado 80045, in the Mt. Yale Room / Child Care will be provided in Creative Play

Despite significant effort, the enrollment for this Saturday’s ask the experts is low.   Summer may be a hard time to get people here as everyone is vacationing.  Given the significant effort to put on these events, we have decided to cancel this Saturday and work towards a reschedule for the fall.  We will announce when we have a new date.  Thank you for understanding.
