Sunday, May 19 - National Hepatitis Testing Day

CrossLink Medical Resources and the Hepatitis Coordinator from the PA Department of Health show their love by offering free testing Sunday, details:

CrossLink Medical Resources will be conducting Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Screening in Montgomery County, Lansdale, Pennsylvania, on May 19, 2013 for National Hepatitis Testing Day. Hepatitis C is the most prevalent bloodborne viral disease in the United States and the deadliest. The focused population for the testing is the Egyptian immigrants whose country of origin is known to have the highest HCV prevalence worldwide. The organization wishes to offer a path for those with Hepatitis C starting with this high prevalence population to overcome barriers to healthcare.

The location of the testing is at the Lansdale United Methodist church, 300 N. Broad St. Lansdale, PA. The event will be from 1 pm – 8 pm. We are fortunate that the Hepatitis Coordinator from the PA Department of Health will be driving from Harrisburg to join us for this event. We look forward to this initiative that can offer aid to those suffering from this viral disease by leveraging resources in the community and across the world.
