May is Hepatitis Awareness Month, a month dedicated for raising awareness about viral hepatitis in the United States. May 19 is Hepatitis Testing Day, focusing on screening those at risk for viral hepatitis. In observance of Hepatitis Awareness Month, I will post to this blog daily, highlighting websites and organizations that are doing remarkable work educating the public, raising awareness, and making a difference in the lives of those affected by viral hepatitis. I suggest you visit each site, and find out what they are doing, how you can stay informed, and possibly help with their efforts. Tweet a thank you while you are at it.
The premier site for information about Hepatitis Awareness Month is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Viral Hepatitis. Be sure to visit the following pages:
