October 11, 2018

On October 11, Governor Andrew Cuomo named Amida Care’s Vice President of Pharmacy, Terry Leach, one of 28 members to New York State’s Hepatitis C Elimination Task Force. More than 100,000 New Yorkers are living with Hepatitis C, and most are unaware that they have it. The taskforce will advise the state on a plan to increasing access to testing, treatment, and education in order to connect New Yorkers to services.
“The members selected for this task force are some of the finest in their fields, and their invaluable experience will provide us with the information we need to develop an attainable elimination plan. This strategic plan will not only improve the quality of life for those living with Hepatitis C, but also ensure that New Yorkers have the support and resources they need to prevent this disease,” said Governor Cuomo.
