​The $15,000 donation by the Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation will help support the Canadian Liver Foundation’s LIVERight Forum.

Since 2015, the Canadian Liver Foundation’s annual LIVERight Forum has provided an opportunity to improve liver health in communities across British Columbia through an interactive delivery of liver health education from leading healthcare experts. A significant donation from the Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation will help support this event.

“We are proud to support the LIVERight Forum because it aligns perfectly with our mission to improve health and wellbeing for British Columbians,” says Jim Iker, Chair, Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation. “The donation helps to ensure that the Forum will continue to raise awareness and provide free public liver health education to British Columbians for years to come.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for many not-for-profit organizations and events over the past year. However, there continues to be an ever-increasing demand for information and public education on liver disease. We remain hopeful that, through support from organizations like Pacific Blue Cross, we will continue to be able to provide vital support and resources to British Columbians who are fighting their health journey.
