During Hepatitis Awareness Month, the NCDHHS Division of Public Health is encouraging residents to learn the risks of liver disease, get vaccinated for hepatitis A and B and get tested for hepatitis B and hepatitis C. In April 2020, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released updated HCV testing recommendations that promote one lifetime HCV test, screening during each pregnancy and repeat testing for individuals who are at higher risk. There is no vaccine for hepatitis C.
Last Wednesday, August 27 of this year, the Consulate General of Mexico in Raleigh became the scene of a unique and emotional event directed by the Consul General of Mexico, Claudia Velasco Osorio: the presentation of the book "El Arte. Espejo de an Immigrant. Story of Cornelio Campos", written by María del Refugio Sandoval Olivas, affectionately known as Cuquis Sandoval. This book combines the richness of the narrative with the chronicle of a life marked by migration and a passion for art.
