1. I have been affected by Hepatitis B. How can I become an advocate and help others with this disease?

You are not alone. I feel in this environment, with 1.3 to 1.5 million people in this country with hepatitis B, we actually have more people with hepatitis B than HIV. And just look at how successful HIV advocacy has been. You could actually be the beginning of a very strong advocacy group. We need you; we need you to speak out, talk to your congressmen, your legislators. Let's educate them about this problem, because they are totally oblivious to it. I spent time with my congressmen a few weeks ago, because he had no idea about this problem. But once you educate them, they are very interested in addressing this problem.
