Did you know?

May 19th is national Hepatitis Testing Day in the United States.

The CDC wants us to know that:

Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C can become chronic, lifelong infections which can lead to liver cancer. Millions of Americans are living with chronic viral hepatitis, and many do not know they are infected.

20 years ago, the vaccination effort against Hepatitis A drastically reduced the number of cases in the U.S. However, many people became infected with Hepatitis B before the vaccine was widely available, which is why it is now recommended for all infants at birth and for adults who may be at an increased risk.

Today is the national testing day for hepatitis - call our office today to make your appointment!
