Our goals

  1. Educate and train healthcare professionals to screen, diagnose, treat, and follow up with patients living with hepatitis C.
  2. Improve individuals' health in communities across Indiana, especially amongst minority and underserved populations.
  3. Collaborate with experts and learners in healthcare and public health spaces to share best practices, provide resources, and champion health equity. 
  4. Advocate for hepatitis C elimination through training and education with a broad range of care collaborations.
  5. Empower learners to discuss what they know and what they don't know, bridge the knowledge gap, and share in a safe environment amongst peers.
