About the Program

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: 

Media

Storytelling

Research and development

Clinical trials

State and federal legislation

Support

Self care

State and federal legislation
