She also organizes and moderates the Cornell GI Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program's bi-monthly support group meetings, coordinates quality initiatives for maintaining the center’s Metabolic Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program designation, and oversees the patient-to-patient ambassador program whereby preoperative patients are connected with more experienced postoperative patients who share their experiences and lend support. 

She writes for, and serves on the editorial board of, Bariatric Times, a national, peer-reviewed industry publication. Liz is a reviewer for various journals including Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases and Obesity Surgery. She authors book chapters and speaks on the topic of nutrition for various audiences around the country.  She is especially proud to have founded Manhattan’s first “ASMBS Foundation Walk from Obesity”, and continues to serve on the organizational committee for this important annual event which has been "walked" since 2003 and raises awareness and funds to help in the fight against the devastating chronic disease of obesity which affects one third of our nation.
