Rutland Regional looks to achieve a cure, hosts Hepatitis C program

Thursday, Feb. 8, 6 p.m. — RUTLAND — The Infectious Disease Team (Dr. John Cotter, M.D.; Melanie McAtee, PharmD; and Stephanie Roach, LICSW) at Rutland Regional Medical Center will be hosting an event about the Hepatitis C Program on Thursday, Feb. 8, from 6-8 p.m., at the Franklin Conference Center at the Howe Center at 1 Scale Ave., Rutland. This event is open to the general public and especially to those individuals with Hepatitis C, their friends, and families. There will be presentations on medications, treatments, and what is required to participate in the program. It is a great opportunity to gain more insight into this disease which has become increasingly prevalent in our community and across the United States.
Hepatitis C is an infection of the liver that results from the Hepatitis C virus. Many people with Hepatitis C are not symptomatic and don’t know they are infected. With newer medications and treatments, the Hepatitis C Program at Rutland Regional Medical has often achieved a greater than 95 percent cure rate with patients.
