HepCBC Hepatitis C Education and Prevention Society sends small teams of nurses and peer navigators (mostly retired volunteers) into rural and remote parts of British Columbia to distribute resources and share information about local needs and the latest treatment for viral hepatitis: hep B (HBV) and hep C (HCV).
We are happy to announce a 10-day roadtrip to northern Vancouver Island is just around the corner! We will be bringing hot-off-the-press posters, pamphlets, and audio-visual resources to community organizations and Friendship Centres, band health centres, and health clinics. Thanks to FNHA Vancouver Island Region Health Liaison, Cody Caruso, for helping us get in touch with the right people. See links to some of the resources we’ll be bringing, below the itinerary.
We’ll be available to speak and give presentations to nursing staff, band officials and CHRs, patients, and the public by request. Our schedule is fairly tight, though, so if you wish to meet for more than 10-15 minutes, you should arrange with us as much advance as possible. We will be trying to phone ahead as well, to make sure we have proper directions, and to know to whom we should present our educational materials. If for some reason we cannot make it to your location, you can give us an alternate place to drop off your materials.
