Webinar on CDC’s Enhanced Viral Hepatitis Surveillance Programs

Please join the White House Initiative on AAPIs and Hep B United on October 8, 2015 from 3p-4p for a webinar on CDC’s Enhanced Viral Hepatitis Surveillance Programs. The webinar will feature speakers from the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Hep B United partners.

In 2012, the CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis funded sites across the U.S. to conduct enhanced surveillance for viral hepatitis. Enhanced surveillance involves the collection of more extensive and complete information than is possible through the current national surveillance system. The funded sites are tasked with developing methods, guidelines, and standards for conducting enhanced surveillance of acute and chronic viral hepatitis as well as special projects to enhance the reporting process.

Join us for this interactive session to hear from state and local epidemiologists who will share their experiences and findings from enhanced hepatitis B surveillance in Michigan and Philadelphia.
