In honor of World Hepatitis Day on July 28th, NEMS is hosting hepatitis C workshops all month long! Did you know? Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis C virus that can lead to a chronic infection causing serious live damage, including cirrhosis (liver scarring) and liver cancer, over time. People infected with chronic hepatitis C often show no symptoms until they have reached an advanced liver disease stage. Fortunately, if discovered early, hepatitis C infection can be cured with treatment which is why it is important to know your hepatitis C status.
