Hepatitis C is highly treatable, and once a person begins treatment, they can be cured within a few months. Yet starting treatment isn’t as easy as that for many. In this webinar, researcher Jessica Jacob shares findings from a study looking at how youth who use drugs experience hep C related healthcare access.
Presenter Jessica Jacob is a 3rd year medical student at University of British Columbia and has published two papers on the intersections of youth who use substances and hep C.
