Hepatitis C Community Barbeque and Outreach Testing

Last week, a special event was held at the Gordon Lathlin Memorial Centre to promote awareness of Hepatitis C and testing for the disease.

 

The event was in partnership with Opaskwayak Health Authority, The Play it Safe Network, and OCN Parks and recreation.

 

Shawn Yaremko one of the organizers from the Beatrice Wilson Health Centre says that it’s important that people get tested because sometimes people have the disease for many years and don’t have any symptoms while it’s doing damage to their liver.

 

Hepatitis C is passed from blood to blood by doing things like sharing needles, and sharing personal hygiene items.
