What We Do

Curious what TLF is all about? We’d love to tell you! We educate and offer resources to Texans who want to keep their liver healthy or are dealing with liver disease. Because we address a wide range of disease issues and liver health concerns, we have the capacity to impact millions of Texans. We are expanding our programs each year as we grow. Read more about our programs below. Let us know if you see a need that you’d like us to try to address.


Doc Talks: Conversations with Liver Experts

In our webinar series Doc Talks: Conversations with Liver Experts, our panels of experts discuss and answer your questions about liver disease, liver health and liver transplantation. Because these videos are recorded and kept on our website, they can be watched at any time. Click HERE to view our past Doc Talks. Let us know if you have a topic you’d like us to address!

Pediatric Fatty Liver Disease (MASLD/NAFLD)

MASLD/NAFLD is a disease that occurs when too much fat accumulates in the liver. Often associated with obesity and diabetes, it currently affects 1 in 10 children. We created a “sugary drinks” poster to start a conversation about sugar consumption between parents and pediatric providers. You can find them in pediatrician offices throughout Texas (and even in California!). We also love being in the community speaking about liver health and nutrition to kids and parents at school and community health fairs. Contact us today if you’d like to see us in your school district!


Texas Liver Foundation advocates for policies to support liver patients and improve access to healthcare. TLF is part of a nation-wide network of organizations focused on liver health. As a result of this network, we are aware of legislative and policy actions that affect liver patients. TLF recently partnered with BARE (Biliary Atresia Research and Education) in effort to get BA added to the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel. The RUSP is a list of disorders that the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommends for states to screen as part of their state universal newborn screening (NBS) programs. The most common reason for pediatric liver transplants is Biliary Atresia and early detection can lead to improved outcomes.
