National Viral Hepatits Roundtable
Survey Reminder!

NVHR has entered a 3 Year Cooperative Agreement with the CDC to increase testing for hepatitis C among Baby Boomers. We have developed a survey to help us better understand current efforts around hepatitis C testing and opportunities to start, assist with, and spread these efforts across our networks. Please take a few minutes before Monday, April 28, 2014 to complete this brief survey! Your responses will play a significant role in guiding the development of our program. For more information, contact Tina Broder, Program Manager, at tbroder@nvhr.org.

Program Partner Spotlight:

Hepatitis C Allies of Philadelphia (HepCAP) is a citywide collective dedicated to improving the continuum of hepatitis C prevention, diagnosis, care, and support services in Philadelphia. HepCAP is positioning Philadelphia to be a national leader in the fight against hepatitis C by mobilizing local stakeholders to raise the public profile of hepatitis C and liver cancer as an urgent health priority, identify gaps in local hepatitis C services, and develop collaborative and innovative projects to improve access to hepatitis prevention, testing, and treatment services. You can learn more about HepCAP at www.hepcap.org.
