  • HepBCommunity.org Research Showcase

    through July 27, 2022
    www.HepBCommunity.org

    HepBcommunity.org is a global, peer-led, volunteer-driven online forum to support those affected by hepatitis B. We aim to facilitate peer networking and to link the affected community to trustworthy scientific and medical expertise.

    Description of the showcase

    At HepBCommunity.org, we want to encourage more conversations between the scientific and affected communities so that we can all learn from each other.

    To do this, we are inviting hepatitis B researchers around the world to showcase their research. They will describe why their research is important, how they do it, and what’s exciting about it in a thread on HepBcommunity.org.

    You will have the opportunity to ask researchers questions about their research. The best questions will be in the running to win a $100 USD gift card.

    Forum members will also be able to cast votes to decide on the most engaging researchers, who will have the chance at winning a $250 USD gift card.

     

    How to enter

    It’s free to enter!

    Just register on HepBcommunity.org and ask questions in the research threads.

Hepatitis WA and their supporters are lighting the city up with green in honour and acknowledgment of those affected by viral hepatitis, and also to raise awareness and demand urgent action from our global decision-makers to give the "Green Light" to prioritise the elimination of viral hepatitis by 2030.

    Globally, 325 million people live with hepatitis, with more than 1.1 million lives lost each year to hepatitis B and hepatitis C. On July 28, we raise our collective voices to call for more action for the people affected by hepatitis.
