Central Connecticut Hepatitis Community

March 2016

Regular 7pm Meeting, March 9th:

Congratulations go to Marty, Adrian and Kim as the 2016 CCHCgroup co-facilitators. There has been a lot of behind the scenes work at the State Dept. of Public Health creating an HCV Profile for Connecticut as well as behind the scenes with the tele-support group (CT Hepatitis Educational Support Group), which will be discussed at the March meeting. We are also wondering who may be interested in a reunion in early summer of the inactive members to introduce them to the new membership and hear where they may be in their HCV progression or eradication; drop a note or email or give Adrian a call to let us know your interest.

Future meetings:
  • April, 2016 meeting: April is National Donate Life month. Also, join us to learn ways to reduce stress this tax season.
  • May 11, 2016 meeting: Hepatitis Awareness Month; activities TBA. Finalize plans for a reunion pot luck dinner.
  • June 8, 2016 meeting: Finalize plans for annual Support Group LiverFest.
  • July 13, 2016 meeting: Celebrate our Independence by joining facilitators in writing local resources to promote HCV advocacy.
  • August 13, 2016 meeting: As schools get ready for the 2016-2017 year, things to take into account when family members prepare to start SCHOOL will be discussed.
  • September 14, 2016 meeting: George Y. Wu, M.D., Ph.D. will be speaking to our group to give us a HCV Therapy Update. Our walk team, Liver Lifers, will walk to raise funds for ALF on September 18, 2016.

Prospects for future meetings:
A transplant surgeon, attorneys, psychiatry professional, massage therapy education and treatment experiences are some of the ideas on the table.
