World Hepatitis Day is part of Avita's campaign to raise awareness about Hepatitis in Louisiana and worldwide.

Come join us on The Prowl For A Cure for a fun-filled pet friendly day at the park featuring local food, education, games, door prizes and entertainment. Including Free Hep C & HIV testing provided by NO/AIDS Task Force. 
Special guests include the 610 Stompers & Gina Brown! 

Did you know that 3 out of 4 people infected with Hepatitis are unaware that they have it?

In 2008, the World Hepatitis Alliance founded World Hepatitis Day as an answer to the lack of awareness centered on Hepatitis. Since then the event has grown to be celebrated in 136 countries and has even broken Guinness World Book records!
Last year, Avita hosted the first World Hepatitis Day event in Louisiana, accounting for 34% of participation in the US.
