State of Michigan gets hepatitis prevention, surveillance grant

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Department of Community Health is taking in a grant for one-point-six million dollars for the surveillance and prevention of acute and viral hepatitis.  The grant is from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and it's the first time the state is getting funding for viral hepatitis surveillance.

The MDCH says as many as 65-percent to 75-percent of Michigan residents infected with hepatitis B or hepatitis C don't know they have it until liver cancer or other chronic liver diseases develop.
