Hepatitis focus of Bijou event

Hepatitis, inflammation of the liver, affects many Americans.

There are over 100 causes of hepatitis and the most common in the United States is alcohol. If hepatitis is caused by a virus, it is given a letter, like A, B or C.

Hepatitis A and B are preventable with a vaccine, and we still see more than 200,000 cases of hepatitis A and over 300,000 cases of hepatitis every year with 1 million chronically infected. There is no vaccine for hepatitis C which infects more than 650,000 in California and over 5,000,000 in the United States.

On Saturday, May 27, the El Dorado County Hepatitis C Task Force and Advisory Council and People Helping People-HCV Support Group will be holding a Hepatitis Awareness Day from noon to 4 p.m. at Bijou Community Park. Please come join us for a day of food, fun and information.
