In observance of Hepatitis Awareness Month, I am posting to this blog daily, highlighting websites and organizations that are doing remarkable work educating the public, raising awareness, and making a difference in the lives of those affected by viral hepatitis. I suggest you visit each site, and find out what they are doing, how you can stay informed, and possibly help with their efforts.
Today I pay reverence to the Hepatitis C Support Project, and its publication, the HCV Advocate. Alan Franciscus started “the project” in 1997, and newsletter in 1998. There was nothing like it back then, and Alan provided information about hepatitis C that was like no other. He spoke hep C in ways that people living with hep C heard, giving us hope, facts, and support. (Full disclosure, I have been writing for Alan for 18 years.)
Be sure to check out:
- The HCV Advocate newsletter
- Information for the newly diagnosed
- Fact sheets
- Information in Spanish
- News and Pipeline Blog
But wait, there’s more…but you will have to discover that for yourself.
