May Marks the Official Launch of
the #justB Storytelling campaign!
Come May, we will begin releasing a unique patient story for each coming month of 2017. 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. 

In April's feature video, Maureen shares her journey as an adoptive mother navigating care and overcoming stigma for her daughter.
