The American Liver Foundation Marathon Team made history when it became the first Charity Partner of the Boston Marathon® Official Charity Program. For over three decades, we have helped thousands of runners cross the finish line while raising more than $30 million crucial funds for the fight against liver disease. We invite you to help us make a difference in our local community and to fulfill our mission of promoting education, advocacy and support services for liver disease. Apply to be a part of the 125th running of the Boston Marathon® with the American Liver Foundation.
Through this webinar, you will better understand the scope of palliative care. Our presenters will discuss disease prognosis and expectations and how to receive assistance with advance care planning. In addition, our presenters will discuss the differences between palliative care and hospice care. They will also review the benefits of palliative care for patients with advanced liver disease and share the story of how they worked together as a team with one patient. Our presenters include Sofia Simona Jakab, MD; Susan Zapatka, APRN; and Sarah Gillespie-Heyman, MSN, APRN-BC.
Please join the American Liver Foundation’s Associate Board of Young Professionals on May 15th for an evening of wine tasting and problem solving.
