May is National Hepatitis Awareness Month
May is National Hepatitis Awareness Month, which was first designated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2001. This is an important opportunity to help raise awareness about viral hepatitis in this country. With up to 5 million Americans affected by chronic hepatitis B and C, there is a lot that still needs to be done to improve prevention, education, and access to medical care and treatment!
Hep B Free Philly Campaign Kick-Off The Hepatitis B Foundation and its partner organizations in Philadelphia are proud to launch this public awareness and education campaign to raise the profile of hepatitis B and to mobilize the city to improve access to care for the prevention and management of hepatitis B, particularly in the high-risk Asian communities.
