January's featured videoshares Epsi's story. For some time, she was monitored every six months, but eventually a doctor told her she could die if she didn’t begin treatment. Instead of automatically taking his advice, she researched her options. She also kept active, ate well, and tried not to worry. Finding a support group helped her to decide on her own terms to take medication, when she had all the information she needed. Her story is also available in Tagalog.
During 2018, 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.
