How Did Kids in Princeton Get HCV?
Aug 16, 2016 | Gale Scott

An outbreak of hepatitis C in mostly young, white , suburban heroin users who live in or near Princeton, NJ, made headlines after it was reported Oct. 7, 2015 at ID Week 2015 in San Diego, CA.

Ronald Nahass, MD, was a co-author of the ID Week  study. He is president of ID Care, the facility where these patients were diagnosed after they got heroin detox treatment at Princeton House, a psychiatric facility that is part of the Princeton Healthcare System. ID Care has 50 clinicians and nine offices practicing out of 26 hospitals.

In an interview, Nahass discussed the outbreak and its implications.
