The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all baby boomers be tested for hepatitis C. Baby boomers are five times more likely to have hepatitis C than other adults. That means that everyone aged 52 to 72 years (born between 1945 and 1965) should ask their healthcare providers for a one-time test to see if they have hepatitis C.
This Thursday, September 28, 2017 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET, this webinar will feature speakers from HHS, as well as perspectives from members of the priority populations and health care professionals who work with them including:
- Baby boomers
- American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN)
- Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI)
- African Americans, and
- Pregnant women
You will hear personal stories of people who have lived with or supported patients with viral hepatitis to increase awareness and enhance understanding of the challenges, opportunities, and strengths of these populations, strengthen engagement, and facilitate important conversations.
The webinar is open to the public. To register, go to, https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1713375951992525826.
