Free Hepatitis C Screening in May

In the United States, millions of people have chronic viral hepatitis C and most do not know they are infected. Symptoms of the disease are not always immediately apparent. However, there is good news – there is a cure for hepatitis C! It begins with testing; a simple blood test can tell if you have hepatitis C.

May is Hepatitis Awareness Month with May 19 marking National Hepatitis C Testing Day. Testing for hepatitis C is recommended for many, especially those who:

  • were born between 1945 – 1965
  • received donated blood or organs before 1992
  • have ever injected drugs
  •  have liver disease or abnormal liver tests
  • have certain conditions: liver disease, HIV, etc.

Throughout May, HopeHealth will be providing free, 20-minute hepatitis C screenings at several locations in Florence, Orangeburg, and Aiken counties. The first step to the cure is being tested. Take control. Get tested.
