FREE Hepatitis C testing across Colorado in honor of National Hepatitis Testing Day!

More than 4 million Americans have been infected with Hepatitis C.  More than 75% were born between 1945 and 1965.  Half don’t realize they were exposed because they haven’t been tested.

Help us change that – if you’ve never been tested for Hepatitis C before, take charge of your health on National Hepatitis Testing Day!  Testing will be available at 15 locations around Colorado on Tuesday, May 19th, 2015.  No appointments required.  Just walk in, get tested with a quick fingerstick, and get your results in 20 minutes!

Hep C Connection and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment are teaming up with nine other organizations to offer this free service, including Colorado’s regional AIDS service organizations and local county health departments.
