Liver Talks: The Remaining Challenges of Treating Hepatitis C

Liver Talks: The Remaining Challenges of Treating Hepatitis C

Show Notes

Much like Thin Lizzy, we’re back…in town?….it’s a new year and a new season of Liver Talks! In this episode, we focus on the challenge of achieving hepatitis C elimination with Dr. Ponni Perumalswami, hepatologist from the University of Michigan. We start by outlining our hopes for this next series of episodes (0:00-3:03), followed by an illuminating discussion with Dr. Perumalswami (3:07-31:36). Finally, we discuss a paper outlining a novel identification and linkage to treatment program for HCV (31:55-41:44).
