The Hep B Foundation is a great nonprofit organization that cares about the health of Philadelphia and the diverse communities that make up this city. As a student volunteer for the Hep B Foundation I have seen first hand the care and effort that is put into planning every single event. From the Flash Mob in Love Park to Hepatitis B screenings throughout the city, I am constantly amazed and impressed by the work that this nonprofit organization does. Keep up the good work!

The Hepatitis B Foundation is one of the best non-profits that puts the health of the community first. Having been to several of the events put on by the Hep B Foundation, including the Hep B Flash Mob, a screening event at the Asian Cultural Arts Festival, and the Dragon Boat Regatta, it is without a doubt that the staff at Hep B Foundation are very dedicated to this important cause. Hepatitis B is a silent killer and a threat to many. I am excited to see that the Hep B Foundation continues to encourage testing for and vaccination against Hep B for the community's own protection.

I have been volunteering with the Hepatitis B Foundation and partner organizations for over a year. The members of the organization are passionate and inspiring, and I have seen firsthand the positive impact they have on the Philadelphia communities that they serve. A recent Hep B screening event was expanded into a full-blown health fair with screening for hypertension, diabetes, dental, obesity, and glaucoma, plus free flu shots and appropriate referral services.

The Hepatitis B Foundation is a unique nonprofit. Not only is it a strong and passionate advocate for families affected by hepatitis B, but it is also a leader in scientific research to find a cure for this devastating condition. The Foundation has been recognized by the CDC and others for its pioneering public health efforts. By building successful partnerships, the Hepatitis B Foundation is able to reach and serve underserved communities in the US and other countries. The people at the Hepatitis B Foundation are very dedicated professionals and their commitment to the hepatitis B community is evident is their innovative public health programs, top-notch scientific research, and passionate advocacy and educational work. I am proud to be working with the Hepatitis B Foundation on some of their programs.

This organization has created an environment not only here in Philadelphia, but throughout the country where the best research and public outreach efforts have come together to combat a disease that affects so many.

The Hepatitis B Foundation does tremendous work building partnerships - both in the in the Philadelphia region where they are located but also across the United States and the globe. Hepatitis is a silent killer and the Hepatitis B Foundation have been leaders in giving a voice to the millions of people living with this virus. They have made a valuable impact towards improving health disparities, particularly among foreign-born communities, thanks to their passion and expertise.

What an amazing and inspirational organization. In addition to serving the scientific community by housing a large number of research projects, the amount of public health outreach that is done by HBF is simply astounding. At both a national and local level, HBF seeks to raise awareness about Hepatitis B and its risks. I am proud to say that I have been a volunteer at several health screenings and the work that is being done at the granular community member level is simply heart-warming. Keep up the great work!

The Hepatitis B Foundation is an amazing organization. They provide vital programming that benefits their immediate community as well as the international community of those affected by Hepatitis B. In addition to supporting laboratory research, they serve as an invaluable source of information for those with Hepatitis B. And they have taken a role as a leader in the national effort to combat Hepatitis B. As a donor, I am confident that they manage their resources well and know that my money is being put to a good use. As a long time donor, I enjoy many opportunities to go beyond financial contributions and work side by side with staff to aid in their programs and events. I look forward to a long relationship with this organization.

The Hepatitis B Foundation (HBF) is a gem. For over two decades, they've served as an advocate for the 2+ million Americans infected with hepatitis B. Advocacy aside, the Hepatitis B Foundation promotes disease awareness, conducts free screenings, and serves as the primary source of information for patients, their families, clinicians, and the public at large. As the only national non-profit organization solely dedicated to the global problem of hepatitis B, they are a truly wonderful and much-needed resource.

I have never seen such a small amount of people make such a large difference. The staff of the Hepatitis B Foundation are dedicated and tireless. As the only non-profit organization dedicated to people with hepatitis B, they realize that they are responsible for being the voice of over 2 million Americans who are affected by hepatitis B infection! As such, the Hepatitis B Founation makes as much noise as possible to make sure that these 2 million folks, who live with a life-threatening disease that is stigmatized and gets very little attention from the media or medical community, are not forgotten. From research, to advocacy, to direct patient assistance, education, and free community screenings and vaccinations, the Hepatitis B Foundation is changing lives both locally, nationally and internationally. They won't quit until until every patient has the medical care they need, and into the future when we finally find a cure!
