Regular 7pm Meeting, August 10th:

As schools get ready for the 2016-2017 year, things to take into account when family members prepare to start SCHOOL will be discussed. Please support our walk team, Liver Lifers ( LLW.CCHCGROUP.ORG ) by walking with us on September 8, 2016 or by donating through our walkers to the American Liver Foundation to eradicate Hepatitis C. Also discussed is our 16th annual Hepatitis Support Group Picnic. Depending on attendees preferences we may watch a Melissa Palmer, MD lecture entitled "Diet, Nutrition and Exercise".

Future meetings:
