From Needle Stick to Cure for Hepatitis
« on: October 13, 2011, 09:49:39 PM »
This is a very interesting interview with Dr. Douglas Dieterich, who got Hepatitis C back before it was even called Hepatitis C.

"I identified with patients who were discriminated against because of their disease. When the first AIDS patients came to hospitals, there werenít many people willing to take care of them. Doctors were afraid that they might catch it. I didnít care about catching anything, because what the heck, I already had one chronic disease that was going to kill me, and if I couldnít do something for myself, I had to do something for other people.

I ended up taking care of a lot of H.I.V. patients, and I also never kept it a secret that I was sick. I donít think my colleagues treated me differently because of my sickness; but I do think there was discrimination because of whom I was taking care of, not because of my own disease."
