DOYLESTOWN, PA (October 9, 2007) – Peggy Farley, Community Relations Manager of the Hepatitis B Foundation, presented a free seminar titled “The ABC’s of Hepatitis” at Doylestown Hospital’s Health and Wellness Center on September 27.

During the seminar, Farley discussed the several types of viral hepatitis commonly referred to as A, B and C. She explained the definition of the word “hepatitis” which translates to the inflammation of the liver and provided the participants with an overview of how research, conducted at the Hepatitis B Foundation’s headquarters in Bucks County, is making progress toward treatment of the disease.

According to Bruce Uhrich, Ed.D., Doylestown Hospital Learning Coordinator for Health and Wellness, “Ms. Farley addressed a critical topic affecting our community. She guided the participants through the myths and facts regarding hepatitis and answered many audience concerns.”

Farley joined the Foundation because of her strong commitment and passion for making a difference in people’s lives. “What you do really matters at the end of the day and I want my work to be for the good of all people,” said Farley.
