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.

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.

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!
