Webinar | Hep Awareness Month: Planning Creative & Impactful Virtual Outreach Events
April 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Millions of Americans are living with hepatitis B and C but as many as 75% of persons living with hepatitis B and 40% of persons living with hepatitis C are unaware of their status. Hepatitis Awareness Month and Hepatitis Testing Day provide an opportunity every May to highlight the importance of addressing hepatitis and the need to improve our response to these epidemics.
Join Hep B United and NASTAD for a webinar on April 27, 2020 at 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT to discuss innovative, online strategies to raise awareness about hepatitis throughout May. During this webinar CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis will share resources that are available to promote testing. Community partners will provide an overview of activities including the impact of COVID-19 on programs, strategies to transition community testing events to virtual activities, increasing social media presence, online hepatitis B education, and discuss their plans for this year’s Hepatitis Awareness Month and Testing Day.
