World Hepatitis Day 2014: "Think Again"

World Hepatitis Day, on July 28, is an annual reminder of the fight that remains to battle this global killer. Around the world, viral hepatitis -- primarily hepatitis B and C -- kills as many people as HIV/AIDS, and in the United States, hepatitis C-related liver illnesses are both a leading cause of death for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and independently surpassed HIV/AIDS deaths in 2007. As one of the communities disproportionately affected by viral hepatitis, at least 25% of PLWHA also have hepatitis C, and about 10% are co-infected with hepatitis B.

Serving primarily those newly diagnosed, and/or those at the highest risk of becoming lost to care, we provide our Case Management services to those incarcerated within the Philadelphia Prison System (PPS).

Team Detroit Creates some HYPE with its Long-Term Project

When Team Detroit began preparing for our long-term project, we established a primary goal of creating a positive change in the city of Detroit that would last beyond our term of service. It was for this reason that we decided to commit our service to an established organization that would continue to serve the community for years to come. Our hope was that we would provide resources for this organization that they would otherwise not have, and that we would develop a framework for these resources to remain in place after our term of service was complete.

The End of the Beginning: Team NOLA Moves Forward

Our year of service is coming to a close in the most hectic way possible - but we wouldn't have it any other way. We always knew Team NOLA would go out with a bang! I'll keep this as short and sweet as possible, because honestly I could go on and on about everything we learned (but you all would get sick of me).
