Please join us for a webinar this Wednesday, December 13, 2017 on hepatitis C (HCV) among pregnant women. The webinar will feature five healthcare professionals who will provide information about increasing rates of hepatitis C among women of childbearing potential and pregnant women. The webinar will also include a discussion of whether expanded hepatitis C screening among pregnant women is warranted.

The webinar will cover:

  • The increased rates of HCV in pregnant women and its relationship to opioid use.
