A3 2019

Since 2017, Global Liver Institute’s Advanced Advocacy Academy (A3) has connected liver patients, caregivers, and family members with the information, skills, and opportunities they need to effectively advocate for liver health.

There are more than 200 A3 alumni from 36 US states and 15 countries. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 and 2021 A3 Symposiums exclusively online. The virtual experience, hosted with the aid of relevant and highly accessible technology, was constructed to introduce participants to a broad set of advocacy areas in which they could focus their future endeavors as an effective patient advocate. These areas included:

  • Advocating on state and federal Capitol Hills, with bills becoming laws
  • Speaking in Externally Led-Patient Focused Drug Development (EL-PFDD) Meetings
  • Forming and leading non-profit organizations
  • Launching support groups
  • Joining GLI’s Liver Action Network (LAN)
