Viral Hepatitis Updates from the HHS Office of
HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy
Registration now open for
Part 2 of the
National Viral Hepatitis Action Plan Priority Populations Webinars
Last week, over 300 participants joined us for the first webinar highlighting the specific issues and personal experiences of populations facing a disproportionate burden of hepatitis B and/or hepatitis C infection. Next week on Thursday, September 28, 2017 from 3:00 – 4:30pm ET, the second webinar in this series 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
We are excited to continue this effort to feature personal stories of people who have lived and/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 as part of our national efforts to meet the goals described in the Action Plan.
The webinar is open to the public, so please register early and share information about the webinar with your networks! Click here to register, or copy this link into your internet browser: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1713375951992525826.
