Hepatitis C can cause cirrhosis of the liver
A Crisis In The African American Community
National Medical Association Findings and Recommendations – October 2013
The Hepatitis C Task Force was formed by the NMA in 2011 to formally address and create an action plan around the crisis of Hepatitis C in the African American Community. One of the Task Force’s initial recommendations was to convene a Consensus Panel. Many of the members of the Task Force serve as experts on the Consensus Panel. Their assistance is invaluable to the ongoing work of the NMA in combating Hepatitis C.
