75% of Americans with viral hepatitis don’t know they have it, leaving them unable to get the care and treatment they need to avoid serious health issues like cirrhosis or liver cancer. The CDC has recently issued guidelines urging all born between 1945 and 1965 to be tested for hepatitis C.

The CDC’s Know More Hepatitis campaign provides crucial information about viral hepatitis and an online risk assessment tool that you can use to find out if you should be tested. You can print out the results and bring to your doctor. Go now to www.cdc.gov/knowmorehepatitis/. It could save your life!
