Liver Back to Patient Support Group list
Hepcats -
The Liver Wellness Group
 

Description
The group formed in April 1997 as the Dublin Hepatitis C Support Group (aka "Hepcats"), meeting once a month in Rathfarnham, on the outskirts of the city. In May 1998 we moved to a more central venue in the Blessed Sacrament Church Hall, Bachelors Walk. In early 1999 we changed our name to Hepcats-The Liver Wellness Group, which better reflects our aims and aspirations. We also adopted a new logo, which incorporates the symbols of both Eastern and Western medicine. A second monthly meeting started in Rialto in June 1999. Aside from general support groups, we have hosted many talks and workshops with various participants, including Dr. Dermot Kelleher, head of the Hepatology Unit in St. James, Hospital, Dublin, Jo Campion, a psychologist specialising in Hepatitis C and John Tindall, director of the UK based Yuan Institute, which treats Hepatitis C with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
