2018 Hepatitis Awareness Month Recap

We just want to thank the community for partnering with us to spread awareness about hepatitis C. Hepatitis awareness doesn’t end in May but we wanted to take a moment to revisit everything the community shared this month.

Hepatitis Testing Day

More than four million Americans are living with chronic hepatitis, yet most don’t know they’re infected.1 So on Hepatitis Testing Day on May 19, we posted the article “Testing Is the Only Way to Know for Sure” to encourage anyone living with potential risk factors for hepatitis C to get tested.

Fact Friday

Every Friday throughout the month, we posted shareable facts about hepatitis C. Save each image and share with others!!!
Fact: Hep C can be cured
Fact: Baby Boomers are 5 times more likely to have hep C than other adults
Fact: Fatigue is the most common symptom of hepatitis C
Fact: Hep C can impact mental health and physical health

Mental Health Awareness

Emotional symptoms are experienced by so many in the community but go unseen by those closest. So during awareness month we highlighted mental health and hepatitis C.
