July 28 is World Hepatitis Day

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, most commonly caused by a viral infection.

Chronic hepatitis B and C are life-threatening infectious diseases that cause serious liver damage, cancer, and premature death. More than 300 million people are infected with the hepatitis B virus or the hepatitis C virus.  Hepatitis B and C are silent epidemics, hitting children and marginalized populations the hardest which include people who inject drugs, Indigenous Peoples, prisoners, men who have sex with men, migrants and people living with HIV/AIDs.

Worldwide, 300 million people are living with viral hepatitis unaware. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost. On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July, we call on people from across the world to take action and raise awareness to find the “missing millions”.

Celebrate National Health Center Week – Aug. 4-10

Each year we recognize the mission and work of the nation’s community health centers during National Health Center Week.  Community Health Centers provide affordable, high-quality health care services to 28 million Americans.

This year, we invite you to join us on Thursday, August 8th at the Pickford Film Center for a screening of “Broken Places”.  This documentary revisits children who had experienced trauma years ago and examines the long-lasting effects.  Tickets are free but must be obtained prior to the film time in order to secure your spot.  Reserve your tickets here.

We will also hold our 3rd Annual Healthy Kids Art Contest during National Health Center Week.  We invite our youngest patients to put their artistic talents to work.  Kids up to age 10 are eligible to enter, and entry forms will be located in our health center lobbies. Thanks to Village Books’ sponsorship, four winners will receive a $25 Village Books gift card!
