Commemorating 20 years of the Friends of the Saint Louis University Liver Center, a dedicated group of civic leaders, physicians, and patients formed to seek opportunities to support the innovation of Liver Center. Nationally recognized for exceptional clinical care and pioneering research, the Liver Center set a model example to inspire philanthropy.

The founding friends provided passion and determination to educate the public on health issues related to liver diseases. They diligently raised funds through a variety of avenues to establish a grant funding program for research initiatives. Thank you to the core leaders, who effectively supported and enhanced clinical care at the Saint Louis University Liver Center.
