HFI National Briefing on Liver Health...
Placing the Liver Front and Center in Prevention
An impressive panel of speakers at HFI's February 2013 National Briefing on Capital Hill, hosted by Sen. Tom Harkin, highlight the impact choice of foods and lifestyle behaviors can have on liver health and prevention of obesity, diabetes, fatty liver, drug abuse, high cholesterol, hepatitis, strokes and heart attacks...and the need for including liver health education in schools across the nation. The briefing, aimed at Placing the Liver Front and Center in Prevention, filled an enormous gap in information about the most complex and misunderstood organ in our bodies, the liver. Information about the liver has been missing for decades in schools resulting in overwhelming numbers of chronic liver related illnesses and preventable deaths.
Thelma King Thiel, CEO of the Hepatitis Foundation International (HFI), served as moderator of the briefing for an audience of legislative representatives, and NGO administrators. She shares unique commonsensical communication techniques promoting understanding of the most complex organ in the body, the liver.
