Webinar: Screening for Hepatitis B in Clinical and Community-Based Settings
Please join Hep B United on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 4:00 PM EST for a webinar on
Screening for Hepatitis B in Clinical and Community-Based Settings !

In the United States, up to 2 million Americans are living with hepatitis B (HBV), a disease that is silent and largely undiagnosed, but preventable and treatable. Chronic HBV increases the risk of serious liver disease and liver cancer. As many as 1 in 10 Asian Americans are affected by HBV, many of whom are limited English proficient and linguistically isolated.
 
Join us for this interactive session to learn about models to increase hepatitis B screening among communities at high risk for HBV infection. Panelists will discuss community-based screening models and the effectiveness of nonclinical versus clinical settings in screening for hepatitis B.
