Check out what we have in store for you in the October Newsletter
Fall is here and The Liver Meeting is right around the corner! But first, we have a spectacular October HCV Advocate newsletter to help you on your personal healthcare journey, your outreach efforts or just for your reading pleasure.
This month’s HCV Advocate newsletter includes:
- SnapShots by Alan Franciscus – This month’s SnapShots features three studies devoted to understanding the relationship between being cured with treatment of direct-acting antiviral medications (DAAs) and liver cancer. While these studies don’t settle the question 100% they come pretty darn close!
- HealthWise by Lucinda K. Porter – Hepatitis C and Health Literacy. Lucinda discusses the need to inform individuals about their health and why we need to do more to educate others about hepatitis C and get people to be tested. It’s about stepping up our efforts.
- Under The Umbrella by Matthew Zielske—Hepatitis C Statistics and Information: The Elephant in the Room. In his article, Matthew discusses how statistics can help and harm when we are educating our communities.
- What’s Up! We are continuing our partnership with PACKHEALTH to offer a limited number of coaching programs for people with hepatitis C – whether you need help accessing treatment, affording treatment, or simply staying on track. Check out What’s Up!, for more information and how to enroll in this free program. Don’t forget this is a short-term program so don’t miss out.
Note: Our blog specials for October will feature articles about extrahepatic manifestations (EH) of hepatitis C. The blog articles will be single topic overviews of various EHs to educate our audience to help people identify and advocate for treatment of these extrahepatic manifestations. You can see our blog here and signup for the eblast for that site here.
