Informational Hepatitis C Links


Be careful when you go on the Internet to get information. Sites that end in “org” are typically organizations. “Edu” sites are usually from educational organizations or universities and “gov” sites are government sites.  But “com” sites are commercial sites where you may encounter advertising and items for sale.
