Our Health - Antivirals: The New Wonder Drugs

Date: Jun 16, 2022 - Jun 16, 2022

Location: Midland Cultural Centre, Midland Ontario

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that viruses can not only be lethal but are also cunning and opportunistic. Scientists around the world are working to stay one step ahead of emerging and evolving viruses through the development of vaccines and antiviral medication. In some cases, treatment regimens of antiviral medications are curing diseases that were once death sentences.

Antiviral medications help the body fight off harmful viruses, by easing symptoms and shortening the length of a viral infection. Antivirals also lower the risk of getting or spreading viruses that cause illness, hospitalizations, and death. 

Join us on June 16, 2022, from 7:30 – 9 PM for an engaging conversation about how antiviral medications have become the new wonder drugs in the fight against diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis and COVID-19.

In-person attendance is FREE with advanced registration at Registration Masking is required and capacity reduced. This program will also be aired LIVE on all Simcoe County Rogers TV stations and available online for streaming. 

All previous Our Health video and brochures are archived and available at MCC Our Health, including our most recent show on May 12, “A Good Life includes a Good Death”.
