Did you know that 2 in 3 adults living with chronic hepatitis in the US do not know that they are infected? Hepatitis B is one of the leading causes of liver cancer and adult immunization rates are well below US public health goals at only 25%. To help raise awareness and reduce new hepatitis B infections in the US through increased vaccination rates, the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) has developed free resources including a Call To Action, infographic, 30-minute expert interview on ReachMD, CME-journal article, and sample social media posts.
