I’m glad to be writing about this, as so many people don’t know enough about hepatitis. It’s a serious issue, as hepatitis can cause serious illness and severe liver damage. Hepatitis C in particular is of concern, as more than 3 million Americans are infected—mostly “Baby Boomers.” Hepatitis C is actually the most common reason people need a liver transplant.

Depression affects 15.7 million American adults.

    Dominic Cefali, MD, PhD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon, The Deaconess Heart Group
