Our Mission.

Our mission is to provide support and hope to patients and families affected by AIH through disease education and research opportunities.

 

Our Executive Director, Craig Lammert, M.D., established the AIHA in 2015 along with patient leaders from across the country. Dr. Lammert  is a clinician and researcher at Indiana University School of Medicine who is funded by the National Institutes of Health to study AIH. 

 

By pairing the expertise of a hepatologist with the firsthand experiences of patients, we create innovative and impactful programming that improves lives for families struggling with autoimmune hepatitis.
