ASMR - NH AIDS Services Director on NHPR The Exchange

The January 5 edition of The Exchange, the NH Public Radio show hosted by Laura Knoy, will feature what it means to live with Hepatitis C and guests include the Executive Director of AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region, Susan MacNeil.

A recently completed series about the experience of living with the disease appeared in the Concord Monitor, written by Monitor reporter, Meg Heckman. Heckman interviewed MacNeil as she developed the story in order to make the link between the early days of the AIDS pandemic when tainted blood infected thousands with both HIV and HCV, examine the co-infection difficulties of people living with both HIV and HCV, and learn how the agency works with people who are HCV+ in light of a lack of funding resources at both the state and national level.

The Exchange is New Hampshire's only daily call-in show dedicated to news and public affairs where listeners have a daily forum to discuss important issues and speak directly with guests. MacNeil will join Heckman, Dr. Jose Montero, NH Director of Public Health and Steve Smith who runs a liver transplant support group at Concord Hospital. The show airs live at 9am on Wednesday, January 5 on New Hampshire Public Radio, 90.7 FM Keene/Southwest NH WEVN.

AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region is a nonprofit agency funded, in part, by Broadway Cares, the City of Keene and the Monadnock United Way. 603.357.6855,,
