Liver Disease Awareness

Often what people ‘think’ they know about liver disease can be as difficult to combat as what people don’t know. There are a lot of preconceived notions and misconceptions about liver disease that can make it difficult for patients to talk to their families, friends, colleagues and others. Many people, for instance, believe that only those who drink or take drugs are at risk of contracting liver disease. The truth is, alcohol is only one cause of the over 100 forms of liver disease.

The Foundation’s awareness efforts try to dispel the myths that stand in the way of the public’s understanding of the risks and impact of liver disease on all Canadians.
