Spotlight: May is Hepatitis Awareness Month

Many of you expressed to us that you would participate in Hepatitis Awareness Month. So, as we kick-off this awareness month, we thought of a few ways to spread awareness throughout the month of May about Hepatitis C.

All month, we’ll be focusing on sharing personal stories, correcting myths and misconceptions, and sharing resources to help those of you living with hep C. This month is about everyone: those just starting treatment or looking for treatment options, and those who have been cured of hepatitis C.
