SU4: Safe Zone: Caring for Patients with HIV/HCV   

Vinod Rustgi, MD, MBA, Heptalogist and Gastrointerologist at RWJ Medical School\

Another RWJ Partners Project ECHO collaboration! Dr. Rustgi is a national leader in the field and heads the upcoming NJ-based HCV ECHO Hub. Co-infection of HIV and HCV is an emerging public health issue with significant clinical implications. There is a poor awareness on the part of physicians and patients on the need for HIV and HCV screening and a lack of honest and open communication contributes to the spread of infection.  This case-based ECHO-like clinic will explore the HIV and HCV infection and discuss screening and treatment/prevention strategies. Stick around to get the scoop on the ECHO/NJAFP collaboration to form a HCV ECHO. Have a case for this session?
