“Connecting to others with liver disease is so crucial. It is easy to get caught in a cycle of malnutrition, fatigue, isolation, depression, pain, and on it goes. By reaching out to others, and their caregivers, I aspire to inspire connections from around the globe.”

“As a professional I’ve worked with hundred of people with NASH and detected some others. I know this disease is not known enough by people and by health professionals, even physicians. My duty is to identify those in risk of developing NASH and NAFLD.”
