HELP! is here to educate the public and support those affected by any type of liver disease, from newly-diagnosed to pre- & post-transplant to end-of-life.

Our specialty is hepatitis C, particularly in baby boomers, who may be unaware of decades-old infection, and younger people whose opiate addiction heightens risk of infection.

The HELP! 3rd-Monday Education Group enters its 20th year in 2018. Meetings are every other month - 'odd' months only - with guest speakers invited ...periodically. Patients are encouraged to attend with a support person.

Services are provided free of charge.
Donations are tax-deductible.
