Dan became a Hepatitis C advocate as a way to give back acknowledging the resources he had access to impacted his outcome. As a Clinical Research Coordinator at the University of California, San Francisco for the Hepatitis and HIV Research Center and a facilitator of support groups, he is committed to improving prevention, testing, education, and treatment within the Hepatitis C community. He hopes the summit will provide individuals an opportunity to connect on a 1-on-1 level to share experiences and learn from one another.
