Welcome

The SLO Hep C Project is dedicated to providing supportive services for county residents living with heptitis C and educating the public and healthcare providers about viral hepatitis.

The San Luis Obispo County Hepatitis C Task Force was established in 1999 in response to the growing number of hepatitis C cases being seen in the community. Service providers such as the San Luis Obispo County AIDS Support Network, County Drug and Alcohol Program, the Economic Opportunity Commission, the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, the Veteran's Administration, County Public Health, the North County Connection and others, came together to pro-actively find resources and strategies to fight the epidemic of Hep C within the county. The SLO Hep C Project was established in 2000 with a grant from the California Endowment.

 

24th Annual AIDS Update Symposium


Thursday, March 20th, 2014
11:30 am - 5:30 pm
Embassy Suites
333 Madonna Road, San Luis Obispo


Please join us for our 24th Annual AIDS Update Symposium! Our program strives to examine topics that inform us about the health of our community. This year’s symposium will take a look at challenges facing an aging HIV population. We will discuss new treatments for Hepatitis C that can dramatically change the course of disease as we currently know it. In addition, we will review new research in HIV/AIDS care and treatment.


As health care providers, Licensed Clinical Social Workers or Marriage and Family Therapists, HIV/AIDS educators and concerned community members, our 24th Annual AIDS Update Symposium will present you with important aspects of HIV and AIDS treatment and care. Our charge in understanding HIV and AIDS is to keep current and find the answers to as many questions as possible for ourselves, our clients and our patients.
