#justB: Real People Sharing their Stories of Hepatitis B
The Hepatitis B Foundation is proud to officially launch its new storytelling campaign, #justB, that creates a national storybank featuring real people living with hepatitis B who share their stories and put a human face on this serious disease. They hope to decrease stigma and discrimination and promote testing, immunization and treatment for hepatitis B to save lives. A new story will be featured each month during 2017. The #justB storytelling campaign is a program of the Hepatitis B Foundation in collaboration with StoryCenter and AAPCHO.
Our December featured story: Carolyn: #justB Family
#justB is made possible by the generosity of:
Arbutus Biopharma, Gilead, Dynavax Technologies
Join Us for the Next #justB Digital Storytelling Workshop in January 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 January 19-21, 2018 in Berkeley, CA. 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.
