Regular Meeting on May 9th:

We applaud Governor M. Jodi Rell for proclaiming May 2007 as Hepatitis Awareness month in Connecticut. Join our round-table style meeting to learn about some hepatitis types and what CHCgroup is doing to boost local awareness.

The American Liver Foundation Liver Update 2007: "Living Well With Liver Disease" held Saturday, May 5, 2007 to educate the general population of an array of topics, presented by professionals in their medical field specialties. The Connecticut Chapter of the American Liver Foundation web site now defers to National; visit these advocates and let us know what you think of their web page now.
