Access code: 506 325 060
On January 16, 2019, HepVu will release its new interactive maps visualizing state-level estimates of people living with Hepatitis C in the U.S. between 2013-2016.
HepVu is also releasing maps visualizing data related to the U.S. opioid epidemic as part of a new focus on highlighting the intersection of the Hepatitis C and opioid epidemics. New Hepatitis C infections have nearly tripled in recent years, with the greatest increases among Americans under 40, particularly people who inject drugs.
The data, developed by the Emory University Coalition for Applied Modeling for Prevention (CAMP) modeling project with researchers from the University of Albany, are supported by CDC and were published in JAMA Network Open.
There will be a webinar briefing on Wednesday, January 16, at 2:00 PM ET with AIDSVu Principal Scientist, Dr. Patrick Sullivan of Emory University, and lead paper author Dr. Eli Rosenberg of the University of Albany.
