The National Legacy Gala recognizes individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the liver community, fields of biotechnology, medical innovation, and philanthropy. The American Liver Foundation (ALF) is committed to facilitating, advocating, and promoting education, support services, and research for the prevention, treatment, and cure of liver disease. Through events such as the Gala, we can provide valuable resources for patients and their families. Together, we are moving closer to a world where liver disease is curable and preventable.
ALF’s National Gala will host patient families, medical professionals, organizational partners and business visionaries in the healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotech industries.
Funds raised through the Liver Life Walk allow ALF to provide valuable resources to liver patients and their families. Together, we are moving closer to a world without liver disease.
