SAVE THE DATE! Wednesday, July 25th is the 6th Annual National African American Hepatitis C Action Day (NAAHCAD). This day provides an opportunity to promote Hepatitis C prevention, testing, and treatment messages to public health partners and the black community. NAAHCAD also provides a chance to discuss the importance of linkage to care, cure and integrating prevention opportunities.
