May is National Hepatitis Awareness Month
May is National Hepatitis Awareness Month, which was first designated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2001. This is an important opportunity to help raise awareness about viral hepatitis in this country. With up to 5 million Americans affected by chronic hepatitis B and C, there is a lot that still needs to be done to improve prevention, education, and access to medical care and treatment!
Nordstrom is donating up to $75,000 to fund Hep B Free during the month of May! For every person who takes their short educational quiz about hepatitis B and liver cancer @ www.nordstrom.com/apahm, Nordstrom will make a $35 donation (up to $75,000). Help raise funds to increase outreach and education efforts through the Hep B Free America campaign. Take the Nordstrom Survey now!
