Join Hep B United, the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable, CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis, and the Hepatitis B Foundation for a Twitter #HepChat Wednesday, June 15 at 2 p.m. EDT. The chat will highlight Hepatitis Awareness Month outreach events and allow hepatitis B and C partner organizations to share their successes, challenges, and lessons learned from their efforts.
Below are the Twitter Chat topic areas of discussion. Partners are invited to share images of their events in May, as well as best practices and challenges in conducting outreach events. Join the conversation with the hashtag #HepChat.
T1. How do you go about organizing and conducting community-based hepatitis education and outreach?
T2. How do you prepare and conduct hepatitis B and C testing events?
T3. What educational or promotional materials do you provide at your community activities?
T4. What are your processes for hepatitis data collection?
T5 How do you notify about their test results and ensure people understand them?
T6. What are your patient navigation and referral-to-care strategies?
T7. What best practices would you share with others who might be planning their first events?
