STOP HCC/HCV Program Featured in CPRIT Annual Report

The Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) featured the STOP HCC/HCV program in their 2018 annual report . The Screen, Treat Or Prevent (STOP) HCC/HCV program has been funded by CPRIT since May 2015 and is led by former ReACH Director Barbara J. Turner, MD, MSEd. In partnership with the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, STOP HCC/HCV focuses on the prevention of liver cancer through the screening and diagnosis of hepatitis C (HCV). This important work is accomplished through community education and the implementation of preventive HCV screening for baby boomers in primary care practices across Dallas and South Texas. The program also provides patient navigation and treatment support for uninsured patients found to be chronically infected with HCV. The STOP HCC/HCV project was recently awarded a CPRIT Expansion grant to expand the project to West Texas with an increased focus on identifying patients outside of the baby boomer birth cohort who need to be treated for HCV to reduce their risk for developing liver cancer. Visit the STOP HCC/HCV website to learn more about this important program working to end the liver cancer epidemic in Texas.
