Many individuals find out they are Hepatitis C positive through plasma or blood donation, ER visits,  substance abuse services, or other outreach programs.  While we do not provide treatment for Hepatitis C, our division does offer education on the disease, referral for free Hepatitis A and B vaccinations,  and a list of local primary care resources that will help with follow-up medical evaluation.

Speakers Bureau If you or your organization are looking for a guest speaker to present information on STD/HIV/Hepatitis or any other public health topic, please contact us.  We have trained professionals ready and willing to present in schools, detention centers, social service clubs, support groups, workshops, or any other venue needed.  Please call either Kellie J Kelley 765-641-9523, ext. 9207 or Karen Finnigan, Health Educator, ext. 9678.

Safer Sex Supplies Free latex and non-latex condoms  are available, free of charge, to walk-ins M-F, 8:00am-4:00pm.  There will be a basket of brown bags in our clinic reception area, next to a donation jar.  No donation is too small to help support this important resource.  We can provide education on the subject as well.  Just ask the receptionist to speak to an educator or counselor.  If a counselor is not available at the time of your visit, just make an appointment.  Your health and ability to remain disease-free is very important to us.
