#justB: Real People Sharing Their Hepatitis B Stories
The #justB storytelling campaign aims to raise the profile of hepatitis B as an urgent public health priority and helps put a human face on this serious disease by sharing stories of real people living with or affected by hepatitis B. The goals of the campaign are to increase awareness and advocacy; decrease stigma and discrimination; and promote testing, vaccination, linkage to care, and treatment to help save lives. The #justB storytelling campaign is a program of the Hepatitis B Foundation in collaboration with StoryCenter and AAPCHO.

Join Us for the Next #justB Digital Storytelling Workshop in Spring 2018!
We are excited to continue our partnership with StoryCenter and announce that our next digital storytelling workshop for the #justB campaign will be held July 2018 in Washington, D.C. The workshop will bring together a small group of individuals living with or affected by hepatitis B to learn how to share their stories to educate the public about the disease and to inspire action.
