(NewMediaWire) – May 02, 2014 – Denver, CO – Avella Specialty Pharmacy, in collaboration with the American Liver Foundation and Denver Colorado AIDS Project, will offer free Hepatitis screenings for the general public at its Denver-based facility on May 19th in support of National Hepatitis Testing Day.
Hepatitis C can be detected through a simple blood test that identifies
antibodies to the virus. Early detection of the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)
is critical since many individuals that have the condition exhibit no
symptoms and don’t realize they are infected.
The screening event will take place at Avella of Denver, Colorado at
1245 East Colfax Ave, Suite 102. In addition to receiving results within
about 20 minutes, individuals will also have access to guidance and
education from healthcare professionals if they test positive for HCV. Appointments are required for these screenings. To schedule an appointment for an HCV test during this free event, please contact Avella of Denver at (303) 863-7644.
