Event coordinated by the Hepatitis B Foundation

Hepatitis B Community Forum

                         Sept. 11, 2024 - 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. CDT

During the International HBV Meeting again this year, a Community Forum on hepatitis B will be held to share the latest advances in HBV research. Sponsored by the Hepatitis B Foundation and ICE-HBV, the Forum facilitates engagement between attendees at the International HBV Meeting, public health professionals and the broader community affected by hepatitis B. The main goal is to promote communication between these groups to identify the best approaches to fast track HBV cure and eliminate stigma and discrimination.
