The PBC Awards

Our PBC awards program encourages the development of innovative projects which aim to improve the lives of people living with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC).

Over the past three award cycles, we have supported a variety of projects including educating others about the PBC name change, advocating for local PBC networks, the development of videos for PBC-friendly recipes, a larger-than-life inflatable liver to educate people on PBC, and many more!

Launched in 2016, Practice to Policy® supports local, innovative ideas that form a basis for best practice, which can be adapted more broadly. At its heart, Practice to Policy® is about sharing learnings that inspire change – what worked well, what didn’t, and what can we learn as an entire community to inform care.
