Using Social Network Analysis to Evaluate Your Hep B Coalition: Join us for a Webinar on Thursday, Sept 21 from 3:00PM - 4:00PM
Across the U.S., community-based hepatitis B coalitions are working to reduce the health disparities associated with hepatitis B by increasing awareness, screening, vaccination, and linkage to care for high-risk communities. Coalition success depends on collaboration, from engaging members to sharing promising practices and integrating efforts to maximize time and resources.

The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center used social network analysis (SNA) to improve program delivery and monitor the development of relationships between Community Roundtable participants working to integrate cancer and chronic disease efforts. Join us for this webinar session to learn how coalitions could leverage SNA to inform program and coalition improvement, provide data that supports anecdotes and demonstrate the development of professional relationships.

#justB Brave
September's feature video   shares Maureen's story. As her adoptive daughters from China were growing up, Maureen learned they were hepatitis B positive, but encouraged them to lead happy, healthy lives. She has always been open with them about the risks of transmission, but now that her daughters are entering adolescence, Maureen struggles with how best to talk to them about what living with hepatitis B means for any intimate relationship they may form.
During 2017, we are highlighting a unique patient story each month. Our #justB Storytelling Campaign is a national effort to bring individuals affected by hepatitis B to share their stories to shed light on this serious disease, decrease stigma, discrimination, and promote the importance of testing and treatment for hepatitis B. If you want to host a screening of the videos, we can help! It is a great way to spread the word and engage your local communities! Email Catherine.Freeland@hepb.org .
