Mar 1, 2020, in Montreal at Le Westin Montreal during the Canadian Liver Meeting.
Attendance at CAHN’s AGM is required to receive member travel reimbursements to the 2020 CLM (see the Conference Travel Policy for more details) but it’s also fun!

A highlight of every AGM is the awards and recognition ceremony. Please take some time to nominate a nurse you know.
Call for Nominations

BC’s Hepatitis C Care Clinics Database Survey
What is the purpose of the database? The purpose is to improve linkage with care for people in BC affected by hepatitis C to make BC HepC-Free! The database will help to refer physicians and members of the public to locate hepatitis C treatment providers who can meet specific client needs. Clinics can indicate if they are accepting new clients and if they allow self-referral. Click here to participate.
