- Fatty Liver Disease – Is This Silent, Life Threatening Epidemic on Your Radar?
What if you could impact liver health and keep some plan members / employees from progressing to more serious, life altering, expensive liver disease; like liver cirrhosis and ultimately liver cancer, failure or a liver transplant?
