Jennifer Heipel would like to introduce Shelter Health Network to the Charlton Health family. The recent collaboration that was made will allow services such as: Outreach workers, Case workers, Community HCV Nurse and a Hepatitis C Peer Group for all hepatitis C patients. We look forward to working with them and offering both existing as well as new patients these amazing services that can be offered! A peer group for Hepatitis patients will allow people to both understand and discuss the treatments that will be offered with those who have actually undergone therapy for Hepatitis C.
For more information, please view the attached flyer: Hep C Peer Support Group
