Hepatitis C: Treatment Options and the Patient Experience

Recognizing May as Hepatitis Awareness Month, the American Liver Foundation produced a live webinar program, Hepatitis C: Treatment Options and the Patient Experience, on Wednesday, May 28.

Did you know that there are new treatments available for Hep C that require shorter treatment times, have less serious side effects and higher cure rates?  Attendees learned about the changing landscape of treatment options and how they affect the patient experience.  The program featured a physician and nurse practitioner who specialize in liver disease and two patient advocates who shared their experience of living with Hep C.  All four panelists were available for a live question and answer session following the presentation.
