Hepatitis C Testing and Treatment
What is Hepatitis C and Why Should You Care?
Hepatitis C is a viral infection that causes liver disease. More than 4 million people in the U.S. are infected with hepatitis C and over half remain undiagnosed. The Wright Center is here to help you get tested, treated and cured of this life-threatening disease.
Those at increased risk for contracting Hep C who should be screened for infection include baby boomers (born between 1946-1965); blood transfusion recipients (before 1992); people who have undergone long-term dialysis treatments; anyone who has injected or inhaled illicit drugs; people living with HIV; babies born to mothers diagnosed with Hep C and sexual partners of anyone diagnosed with Hep C.
Remember, Hep C is curable and easily treatable. Let us help you create a treatment plan.
