Group Name: Canadian Liver Foundation
Description: Founded in 1969 by a group of doctors and business leaders concerned about the increasing incidence of liver disease, the Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF) was the first organization in the world devoted to providing support for research and education into the causes, diagnoses, prevention and treatment of all liver disease. Throughout the Foundation’s 40+ years, they have served as a model for similar organizations around the world.
Today, their focus remains virtually unchanged from those early days. Their mandate is to promote liver health and to reduce the incidence and impact of all liver disease. To achieve this goal, CLF works through their volunteer chapters across the country to improve public awareness and understanding of liver health and liver disease, raise funds for research, and reach out to liver disease patients and their families.
