Hepatitis C Screenings

Hepatitis C Screenings

Hepatitis C is a potentially life-threatening disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. It is contracted through blood-to-blood contact with an infected person which can happen in a variety of different ways. Hepatitis C often has no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage so you may not be aware that you have the disease. The good news is that all it takes is a simple blood test to find out if you have Hepatitis C.
