Session 1 - April 27, 2023
Nutrition and the liver are related in many ways. Your liver plays a key role in converting food into the building blocks needed to keep the body going. If you or your loved one are living with a liver disease, eating a healthy balanced diet is essential to support your body and liver’s health. While nutrition can be a complicated topic with how much information can be found online, nutrition at its roots is surprisingly simple. There are some easy tips and tricks that you or your loved one can use on your nutrition journey to make things easier. Join us on April 27 at 7pm ET for our first Living with Liver Disease of 2023! This session will focus on nutrition and liver health, presented by University of Alberta Professor and Registered Dietitian Dr. Diana Mager and the CLF's Health Promotion Program Coordinator and Registered Dietitian, Anisha Vijh.
Helping Hands: Caregiving Supports with the Ontario Caregiver Organization.
Caring for a loved one with liver disease can be a very rewarding experience, while also being stressful, and overwhelming at times. Given some of the challenges of caregiving, we at the CLF want you to know there are supports and resources available to you. We are partnering with the Ontario Caregiver Organization for this webinar to bring you practical information on navigating access to the supports you need as a caregiver. Join us on May 24th at 7pm ET for our upcoming Living with Liver Disease session on caregiving support.
Session 3 - November 28, 2023
Navigating Autoimmune Hepatitis
Autoimmune hepatitis is liver inflammation that occurs when your body's immune system turns against liver cells. Understanding how autoimmune hepatitis works, how it affects your liver and your body, and what treatments may be available, are all important things to know for those living with autoimmune hepatitis and their loved ones. While facing an autoimmune condition can be overwhelming, we hope this webinar provides you with some key pieces of information that can help you know more.
