How can I help stop the spread of viral hepatitis?

To discuss options for sharing your hepatitis experience with others, contact Alex Shirreffs at alexandra.shirreffs@phila.gov or 215-685-6462.

One easy way to be involved is to be informed! Sign up to receive a monthly newsletter with the latest information about hepatitis events, resources, and news.

SHARE YOUR STORY!

Have you been affected by hepatitis B or C or know someone who has? We are looking for people who are willing to share their stories to help us raise awareness about how hepatitis impacts the lives of thousands of Philadelphians. You can choose to tell us your story anonymously, or share it openly with community members. Sharing your story will help us show others how common viral hepatitis is and will encourage other Philadelphians to get tested and seek the support they need.

To discuss options for sharing your hepatitis experience with others, contact Alex Shirreffs at alexandra.shirreffs@phila.gov or 215-685-6462.
