Message from the PA Department of Health

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has developed several opportunities for Pennsylvanians to share their experience with viral hepatitis. Viral hepatitis is a devastating consequence of substance use disorders but is preventable and treatable. Stories will be collected via virtual group listening session, one-on-one interview, completing an online form, or leaving a voicemail at 412-258-3398 and answering four core questions. Attached, you’ll find a flyer for listening sessions, social media posts, and a brochure describing these opportunities. The stories collected will be compiled and used to illustrate how viral hepatitis affects Pennsylvanians and will be included in Pennsylvania’s Viral Hepatitis Elimination Plan.

Learn more about Hepatitis C from the Pennsylvania Department of Heath.
