Check Hep B Patient Navigation Program

The goal of the Check Hep B Patient Navigation Program is to link NYC residents living with Hep B to medical care. Patient navigators support patients to complete Hep B medical evaluation, stay in Hep B care, and treatment (if recommended) and to maintain liver health. This program is funded by New York City Council and administered by the NYC Health Department.
