Each year for World Hepatitis Day (July 28th), HepCAP and Hep B United team up, using the creative energy of our members and student interns to make hepatitis awareness videos. Check them out!
Thanks to Michelle Dougherty and the C A Difference team at Drexel for envisioning a hep free Philly by using real experiences that individuals around the city have had with hepatitis C. Take a tour around Philly with some awareness messages that will remind you how important it is for HepCAP members to keep working towards ending hep C in our city!
In the summer of 2014, you probably found yourself humming the super catchy song, “Happy,” by Pharrell. Well, the awesome C A Difference team at Drexel used the melody to create, “HepFree” – a song and video to raise awareness about hepatitis!
A link to the video was shared by HepCAP and Hep B United partners locally and globally – Hep B Foundation, the Philadelphia Dept of Public Health, CDC, NVHR, Hep C Advocate, the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease, the World Hepatitis Alliance and others all helped promote it through social media. Thanks to Allison Brodsky who spearheaded the filming (and busted some dance moves in the O’Liver costume) for the cause!
In 2013, HepCAP and Hep B United invaded LOVE Park to stage a giant dance party. O’Liver joined us to do the Wobble – it was amazing to watch almost 100 people gather for the event! Thanks to Hepatitis Australia for inspiring us with their own dance flash mob! Thank you to Austin Higgins for filming and editing and to Meryl Schulman for producing and pulling all the pieces together!
