May 8, 2024

Categories cover six areas of liver disease

Winners from the American Liver Foundation’s 2024 Liver Health Poster Competition were announced today. This competition showcases posters and a brief video created by early career healthcare professionals from across the country on six areas of liver educational focus: disparities in liver disease, fatty liver disease (newly renamed to steatotic liver disease), liver cancer, liver transplantation, pediatric liver disease, and rare liver disease. Competitors are tasked with translating complicated medical information into a poster that can be easily understood by patients or the public.

“Educating the public about liver disease and helping those already affected better understand new research and treatment information is an essential part of what we do here at American Liver Foundation,” said Lorraine Stiehl, Chief Executive Officer. “Our Liver Health Poster Competition provides a unique opportunity for early career professionals to showcase their creative talents and abilities to translate complex information in fun, accessible and compelling ways. We congratulate all of the winners and are so grateful to everyone who participated.”
