New Online Resources to Help You Learn More About Liver Disease
Patient support, education and awareness are central to the work we do at the Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF). For many years, we’ve produced new content annually to help Canadians better understand the world of liver disease, but in recent years we’ve produced even more to support our community in a virtual-first world. More than ever, we’ve virtualized our liver health education programs to stay connected with you, our liver health community, amidst the global pandemic. The result? New online resources to help you learn more about liver disease, diagnosis, prevention, care, and research.
Here’s our 2021 roundup:
Meet the Researcher Series
Donations made to the Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF) help fund liver disease research, helping to advance prevention, diagnosis, treatment and even cures. In this ongoing series, we showcase this life-saving work and introduce you to the faces behind it.
So far, we’ve shared five interviews, including with:
- Dr. Giada Sebastiani

Liver Cancer Education Videos
From defining liver cancer and talking prevention, to treatment and managing symptoms, we cover it all in this bilingual, three-part animated video series.
