The goal of these sessions is to:
- Bring people living with HCV, public health officials, local representatives, community advocates, and other members of the public together
- Hold informed discussions on what is needed to eliminate hepatitis C in our state and our regional communities.
Please join us to assure that our movement for hepatitis C elimination in New York State uplifts the voices of and reflects the message of the communities hit hardest by this epidemic.
We will be hosting a Listening Session in Newburgh at Hudson Valley Community Services from 2:00pm- 4:00pm on Tuesday, July 18th. We hope that you will join us and help to get the word out.
Over 200,000 New Yorkers are living with hepatitis C (HCV), half of which do not know their status. New York City has historically been the epicenter of the State’s HCV epidemic, but in 2014 more than half (51.2%) of new chronic hepatitis C cases were diagnosed outside of NYC. Baby boomers once had the highest infection rates, but injection drug use has led to steep increases in HCV infection among 20- to 39-year-olds.
Join us in Newburgh in the fight to eliminate HCV in New York State!
