What we're about
Austin H Friends is a very active social and support group for those 18 or older who have been diagnosed with Herpes HSV1 and HSV2 with close to 900 members in and around the Austin area.
Austin H Friends host 5 AHF sponsored events each month with our members hosting ‘impromptu’ events throughout the month…there is never a dull moment with this group! You can always count on the following monthly events, Happy Hour, Austin HELP Support Meeting, Sushi Night, Newcomers Mix and Mingle and Foodie Wednesday.
Our members’ privacy is important to us. Austin H Friends MeetUp group (as well as our other outreach platforms) is set to PRIVATE or SECRET meaning that only approved members can see the details of our events, the location and comments within each of those platforms. We support Yahoo Groups, Facebook and now MeetUp.
***We do not ‘vet’ our membership by anything other than asking if you have a HSV/HPV diagnosis…online safety and privacy is always recommended. ***
For those members who would like to take extra steps for privacy, we recommend that you create an email account specific to only your H activities, remove your last name from your profile, set your MeetUp group settings to ‘hide your groups’ and if you are interested in our Facbook page (which we HIGHLY recommend), you may consider creating a separate H profile. To join the Austin H Friends Facebook group, please friend one of the following and send us a message letting us know you want to be added to AHF Facebook page:
Austin H Friends does have set membership rules that we expect all members to abide by, you will receive that information in a separate message.
You have taken the first step in finding us, now join and attend an event; we don’t think you will regret it.
See you soon!
