Texas Herpes Groups (Local)

Please Note: These herpes groups (HPV, too) are not run by HWerks. They are run by awesome volunteers! While some groups may focus on support, others may be purely for social and dating. Local groups are just another way to meet people in your area and are a great asset to the community! Not all group members are a member of HWerks and vice versa.  Each group is different so please visit their website for more details. Visit the Local Groups page to learn more about local groups.
