Check out what we have in store for you in the December Newsletter
I don’t know about you but I can’t believe that 2018 is almost here! Next year is the 20th anniversary of the HCV Advocate newsletter and we will have a special issue discussing our 20 years in hepatitis C (HCV) advocacy.
This month’s issue has information about 2017’s Liver Conference. Lucinda and I write about the information that is not always covered in the national news media but we believe that it is important to our readers. Matthew writes about recovery—a topic that is close to his heart.
