Letter — Learn about hepatitis C

Tahoe Daily Tribune

I’m a retired medical doctor living on the Keys after having spent over 30 years at UCSF doing liver research and teaching. I wanted to thank you for your excellent coverage of a major medical problem which in my opinion does not receive nearly enough coverage. There are approximately 4.5 million Americans with hepatitis C and many more who don’t realize they have it. Although there are no vaccines available at present, which you pointed out, this, with the right education is a preventable disease. Thank you again for this timely and well written article.
