National Hispanic Hepatitis Awareness Day 
is this Week! 

May 15th  is the one day we set aside to push forward with our commitment to bring awareness of hepatitis and engage our communities in a strong and fruitful response to a preventable viral hepatitis epidemic. The theme for the fourth annual National Hispanic Hepatitis Awareness Day is "Mi Gente, Let's Talk About Hepatitis" (Mi Gente, Hablemos Sobre La Hepatitis).
