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.

Presenter Jessica Jacob is a medical student at University of British  Columbia and has published two papers on the intersections of youth who  use substances and hep C.

Suggested Audience:
  • Frontline workers (peers, paid and/or volunteers) in outreach, case management, and healthcare navigation
  • Frontline workers (peers, paid and/or volunteers) providing support in HIV, hepatitis C and/or harm reduction
  • Program Managers and/or Executive Directors overseeing frontline workers
  • Allies and community members
