Mary C. Olson, D.N.P., A.N.P.
In today’s complicated and demanding world of health care, I am fortunate to be able to contribute to a vital area of research – hepatitis C. Over the years, I have been gratified to find that my efforts and those of my team have had a positive impact on the lives of many of our patients.
