Mission Critical Health teams up with
Hepatitis Foundation International
WELLINGTON, FL, July 28 2014 —Mission Critical Health signs agreement with Hepatitis Foundation International to develop a series of evidence based liver health educational videos. Our mutual goal is to educate an international audience about liver health, promote healthy lifestyle choices and reduce the incidence of preventable liver-related chronic diseases.
“According to the CDC, Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is the most common chronic blood borne infection in the United States; approximately 3.2 million Americans are chronically infected. We feel improved patient prevention education is needed to increase awareness and reduce risks,” said David Holden, Senior Producer for Mission Critical Health. “This liver health series of educational videos contains empowering information to help patients better understand the impact their lifestyle can have on liver health.”
HFI's CEO Ivonne Fuller states, "As HFI celebrates World Hepatitis Day, this strategic partnership with Mission Critical Health allows the Foundation to reach a larger audience with quality education to stem the rising tide of liver disease nationwide and globally."
