2018 New York City Viral Hepatitis Research Symposium

by NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

Equity in Prevention & Treatment

The symposium will bring together approximately 200 local medical providers, laboratory directors, community service providers, policy-makers and other stakeholders from many settings in the New York City metro area. It is an opportunity to showcase local research and innovative projects related to viral hepatitis prevention, management and treatment.

This year’s theme elevates prevention & treatment among priority populations, which includes: recent immigrants, people who inject drugs, justice involved, undocumented, uninsured and pregnant individuals. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of current strides towards health equity, the gaps that exist in our knowledge base, and be able to identify future research priorities and interventions.
