This month, KEXP’s Community Partnership Initiative, is pleased to spotlight the Hepatitis Education Project, a non-profit organization that’s committed supporting and advocating for people affected by hepatitis and to helping raise hepatitis awareness amongst patients, medical professionals and the general public.
Five things you can do right now to get involved with the Hepatitis Education Project (HEP).
2. Volunteer with Us: Join our team of volunteers! HEP started as a volunteer-run organization and since those humble beginnings, volunteerism has remained a core component of the work that we do. Given our small staff and the comparably large number of programs we run, volunteer opportunities at HEP are both plentiful and diverse. Visit our website to learn more about our programs and about opportunities to volunteer.
3. Learn about the risk factors for hepatitis C and hepatitis B, and talk to your doctor about getting tested.
4. Get vaccinated against hepatitis A and hepatitis B; visit our website for more information about the vaccines.
5. Sign up to be an organ and tissue donor though Donate Life.
On Saturday, February 4, the Audioasis Community Partnership Benefit show at The Sunset in Ballard will feature Dyme Def with Hypatia Lake and Derek Kelley and the Speedwobbles. Each band has generously donated their performances to benefit the Hepatitis Education Project.
Hope to see you there!
