Living Well with Conditions Affecting the Liver.

This is the flyer for our event. It has been organized by CLDI and the Gastroenterology/Hepatology department of Our Lady’s Hospital in Crumlin.

There is a need to address issues that we as parents need to know about but which may not be easily addressed at clinic.

There will be information on issues that will affect all of our children-alcohol, obesity, sexual health and impact on family life. We hope that it will help families to find ways to talk to their children about critical issues as they grow up.

We are delighted to have the speakers who have agreed to attend.

Dr Emer Fitzpatrick may be known to some of you as she is one of the Consultant Hepatologists in Kings College Hospital in London.

Dr Steve Stewart is a Consultant Hepatologist in the Mater Hospital. He is a member of the Royal College of Physicans policy group on alcohol.

Elizabeth Nolan is the Senior Psychologist in Our Ladys Hospital, Crumlin. She has been in this role for 5 years. She is currently doing research to better understand the needs of families with liver disorders.

We encourage all parents to come along to make this a very successful event.
