I moved to Grass Valley six years ago. It was love at first sight, a love that gets stronger with time. Grass Valley is nestled in Northern California’s Sierra Foothills. It is beautiful, the people are friendly, and I don’t want to say much more about it because as much as I love it, I don’t want it to get any bigger.
Hepatitis C is always on my mind and I was wondering how many people in Nevada County might have it. My unscientific, but probably low estimate is that 16000-2000 county residents are infected. With the first national Hepatitis Testing Day on May 19th around the corner, I thought for sure that the Nevada County Public Health Department would offer something—they aren’t. Then I looked to see if Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital was offering something—they aren’t either. That leaves me.
