In addition, your organization will be mentioned as a national partner in our social media campaign and your event will be listed on NBLCA’s web page.

As a national partner, your participation will help to ensure the success and impact of this critically important campaign—namely, increased Hepatitis C awareness, increased Hepatitis C testing, increased access to treatment for individuals infected with the Hepatitis C virus, and, ultimately, a decrease in the number of people infected with Hepatitis C.

Please contact Melissa Baker at mbaker@nblca.org or 212.614.0023 ext. 109 if you have any questions or comments. Together, we can help our communities get educated, get tested, and get the word out about HCV.
