Program Overview: Do you have questions about hepatitis C prevention (including sexual transmission) and treatment? This is a very exciting time for HCV as we have lots of new treatments on the horizon and we have an opportunity to treat and cure everyone with this disease! That said, awareness of HCV is relatively low, and there can be lots of confusion about it. This program will feature
 
    •    an overview of HCV prevention and treatment;
    •    an open question and answer period from the audience;
    •    a facilitated discussion on safer sex and HCV;
    •    where to go for HCV testing; and,
    •    a call for greater advocacy and resources to improve access to prevention and treatment.
 
About Our Presenter: Andrew Reynolds is the Hepatitis C Education Manager at Project Inform. In addition to facilitating HCV support groups, managing a national hepatitis C phone-line, and other related HCV educational efforts, he is leading a campaign to raise awareness of sexual transmission of HCV in HIV-infected persons. Prior to working for Project Inform, Andrew spent over 15 years working in HIV, STD and HCV treatment and prevention.

Academy Programs are open to all genders and orientations.
