Central Connecticut Hepatitis Community

July 2006

Regular Meeting on July 12:

CHCgroup will hold its third round table open-forum meeting of 2006, where new members have the opportunity to learn more about their disease from members who have been with us for a while, experienced many symptoms and remedies that worked for them. July of 2006 is also the first anniversary of our web page, offering up to date information of upcoming and past meetings, allowing members to plan their attendance and those of their guests, as well as to use as a resource of links. In celebration, we will be rolling out the first edition of C in CT, our new newsletter; keep an eye out for the link activation. This is also the last open forum venue to decide details about the annual picnic, LiverFest 2006 in August; if unable to attend the July meeting, call or email your ideas, concerns and comments to review at the meeting and in making decisions about the details.

Future Meetings
