Washington, DC, January 14, 2022 – In 2021, the Global Liver Institute (GLI) formed the Liver Action Network (LAN) to better synchronize engagement across the liver advocacy community, and to meet the needs of a rapidly growing cadre of liver health advocates. The LAN operates as a first-of-its-kind network that provides community member organizations a central structure for the formulation of collective health policy and programmatic solutions.

Today, GLI is proud to announce two new additions to the LAN leadership team so that this growing network can continue to carry out it’s impactful mission of improving the lives of all people impacted by liver disease at the local, state, national and global levels.

Scott Suckow of the Liver Coalition of San Diego and the Northeast Ohio Liver Alliance, has accepted the position as the first LAN Chairperson. Scott has a wealth of experience in alliance development, community building, government relations, association management, strategic program design and execution. As the new Chair of the LAN, Scott will work with GLI staff to ensure the LAN continues to prioritize collaboration, and results driven community initiative development.

Also joining the leadership team is Elisabeth Vogel, serving as the LAN Senior Coordinator. She was previously with GLI’s Liver Cancers Department, and is excited to utilize her Liver Cancers Council experience to provide programmatic solution support to LAN members, and to manage the continued growth of the LAN.

GLI looks forward to continuing to facilitate a group capable of making groundbreaking liver health changes globally. To learn more about the Liver Action Network or to join, please visit https://globalliver.org/liver-action-network/.
