Join us June 6th in Bath, June 7th in Rochester, June 8th in Geneva for Hepatitis C Listening Sessions

June 6th-8th we’re coming to your community. Please Join Us to assure that our movement for hepatitis C elimination in New York State uplifts the voices of and reflects the message of the communities hit hardest by this epidemic:

6/8: Geneva 2pm- 4pm- Register Here!

The goal of these sessions is to:

  • Bring people living with HCV,  public health officials, local representatives, community advocates, and other members of the public together
  • Hold informed discussions on what is needed to eliminate hepatitis C in our state and our regional communities.

What is the state of hepatitis C in New York State:

  • Half of the 200,000+ New Yorkers living with hepatitis C (HCV) do not yet know their status and new infections are skyrocketing statewide.  
  • New York City is no longer the epicenter of the epidemic; 51.2% of new cases were diagnosed outside of NYC.
  • Not only the location but the population affected has changed; the opioid epidemic has led to steep increases in HCV infection among 20- to 39-year-olds.
