Ask the Experts is designed for patients, caregivers, the general public, students and medical professionals who wish to learn about various liver-related health issues. The format is a panel presentation followed by a Question and Answer session. Food and beverage will be served. Pre-registration is required for these programs.

My father, mother, and I recently attended the American Liver Foundation's "Ask the Experts" event at Quinnipiac University. While this was only the second American Liver Foundation event we have attended, the staff immediately recognized us and warmly welcomed us to the event. The event itself was professionally run and the content was informative and relevant. My father has been battling liver cancer and the event gave him a forum to improve his understanding of his disease and gain awareness of resources available to him. It was also an opportunity for him to share information with his family and address their questions. The speakers selected were truly excellent from start to finish. This event was very obviously put on with love by a group of capable, knowledgeable individuals in touch with the needs of their target demographic. Thank you for having us,The Blair Family
