In observance of Hepatitis Awareness Month, in May I will post to this blog daily, suggesting ways we can help raise awareness about issues surrounding hepatitis C. 

A simple way to raise hepatitis awareness is by adding a message to your email signature line. You add this in your settings, and the message will be automatically added to your emails. 

Currently I use a graphic that I downloaded from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s website: Resources for Hepatitis Awareness Month and Hepatitis Testing Day 
Here are some simple, but powerful messages you can use:
  • More Americans die from hepatitis C than from HIV. Get tested, get treated, get cured!
  • One in 30 Americans born between 1945-1965 is living with hepatitis C. Get tested, get treated, get cured!
  • Every day, more than 53 people in the US die from hepatitis C; it’s time to change this. The CDC recommends one time hep C testing for everyone born from 1945 through 1965
