Projects In Knowledge® Supports National Hepatitis Testing Day, May 19
Announces Point-of-Care Resources on HBV and HCV Infection

Little Falls, New Jersey—May 14, 2012—As the first National Hepatitis Testing Day approaches, Projects In Knowledge (PIK) reiterates its position as a leading developer of free mobile apps, peer-reviewed education, and dynamic practice tools for gastroenterologists, hepatologists, and infectious disease specialists. PIK brings awareness to clinicians about hepatitis B and C virus (HBV/HCV) infections through multiple educational programs that feature best-in-practice management strategies:


Approximately 75% of people with chronic viral hepatitis do not realize that they are infected and therefore are not receiving treatment. Citing this growing epidemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed its Know More Hepatitis prevention and screening campaign and designated May 19, 2012, as National Hepatitis Testing Day.


”Projects In Knowledge fully supports the CDC's Know More Hepatitis and National Hepatitis Testing Day initiatives,” said Patty Peterson, CCMEP, Senior Vice President at PIK. "Clinicians must take the lead in raising the public's awareness of viral hepatitis and recognizing the urgent need to screen at-risk individuals. PIK's free apps and practice tools offer guidance and information to help clinicians combat this serious health crisis."
