Webinar: Promoting access to hepatitis C care for youth who use drugs

About The Event
Hepatitis C is highly treatable, and once a person begins treatment, they can be cured within a few months. Yet starting treatment isn’t as easy as that for many. In this webinar, researcher Jessica Jacob will share findings from a study looking at how youth who use drugs experience hep C related healthcare access. Discussion of the findings will reflect on how frontline workers can support youth in navigating care.
