Give the Test. Offer the Treatment. Help Cure Hep-C
As a healthcare provider, you understand the serious consequences that can impact patients with undiagnosed Hepatitis C — such as liver damage and other significant health problems.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all adults over the age of 18 get tested for hepatitis C at least once in their lifetime, and even more frequently if they fit into any high-risk categories. While we raise awareness of the need to get tested, treated, and likely cured, we ask you, as healthcare providers in eastern Connecticut to offer the test to your patients who meet any of the following criteria:
Over the age of 18 years old
History of intravenous drug use
Multiple sexual partners
Pregnant women (during each pregnancy)
