Dr. Howard Koh Urges Baby Boomers to Get Tested for Hepatitis C
Dr. Howard Koh, Assistant Secretary for Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), talks about the CDC’s new recommendations that all Americans born from 1945-1965 get a one-time test for Hepatitis C. People in this age group are five times more likely to have Hepatitis C, but most do not know they are infected. If you were born from 1945-1965, talk to your doctor about getting tested.
