The Gloucester Health Department, American Liver Foundation, and Massachusetts General Hospital will be conducting a FREE Hepatitis C testing event on July 23rd 9 AM to 1 PM at the Rose Baker Senior Center, 6 Manuel F. Lewis St., Gloucester, MA. Anyone is welcome to attend.
This testing event is a part of a community wide Hepatitis C Initiative for the Baby Boomer Population. Those born 1945 – 1965 are five times more likely than any other adult to have Hepatitis C. Many people with chronic Hepatitis C do not know they are infected, getting tested is the only way to find out.
