Hep B Testing Day!
May 19th is nationally recognized as Hepatitis Testing Day, with the goal of raising awareness of hepatitis B and hepatitis C, and to encourage testing to identify your status. It is an important opportunity for us to educate the communities most impacted to take a positive step in monitoring their health. No one, no family, should be impacted by viral hepatitis.
Thank you to our wonderful partners End Hep C SF and the @San Francisco Hepatitis C Task Force for making the Hepatitis Testing Day Rally so successful.
A special thanks to Katy Tang, Fiona Ma, Barbara Garcia for giving us the support we need to make a bigger voice to #EndHepatitis.
1 in 12 Asian American and Pacific Islander adults are chronically infected with hepatitis B.
2 our of 3 people don’t know they have it.
1 in 4 will develop liver cancer or liver disease from it.
Don’t become a statistic. Go out and get tested today!
