Get Tested. Get Treated. Get Cured.

Here are 3 reasons why You should get tested for Hep C:

  1. You could have Hep C even if you feel fine! It can take 30 years for you to develop any symptoms. Untreated, the virus could cause significant damage to your liver, including cancer or cirrhosis.
  2. If you do have Hep C, new treatments have improved dramatically and even have an over 90% cure rate! The sooner you get tested, the quicker you can get treatment!
  3. You are especially at risk for Hep C if you were born between 1945-1965; if you’ve ever used IV drugs; or, if you received a blood transfusion before 1990.

The test is quick, easy, and, thanks to generous funding from Dignity Health Community Grants Program, confidential Hep C testing is now available to you FREE at locations throughout SLO County!

Call us or any of our community partners and we’ll get you connected to a testing site near you!
