Walk on Washington 1998
This video shows clips from the Hepatitis Foundation's 1998 hepatitis
conference in Washington D.C. which
included the NHCC's first national hepatitis
awareness rally ever held in the United States. Our rally was coordinated with HFI's
annual conference that year at their request. (At the time the NHCC was called the "Nashville Hepatitis C Coalition"
- the name change came later.)
The NHCC had originally planned to hold the first national rally for hepatitis
C independently in 1998, but when HFI learned of this they asked us to hold our event together
with their yearly conference "so as not to conflict with each other's events".
It had been our intention to call the rally "WAKE
UP WASHINGTON" ever since the beginning of planning in late
1997, but HFI chose to "tone down" the name we'd picked and instead
chose to call the mutual 1998 event "Walk on Washington". Rather than make an issue
of it we simply returned to using
our own "WAKE UP WASHINGTON" name for every rally we've held since.
It should be noted here
that although the NHCC was at one time a supporter of HFI and had worked closely
with them prior to this event, due to progressing differences in motivations and
perceptions of what is truly in the the best interest of hepatitis patients, this was the first and last event
the NHCC held in conjunction with any of HFI's activities.
more national rallies for hepatitis C have been held by the NHCC since 1998, and both
were hosted solely by the NHCC along with patients and families all over America.
No longer is the NHCC in any way affiliated with HFI nor have we supported any
of their activities since 1998.

DO YOU HAVE TATTOOS?

(especially older ones)!!
TATTOO TIME BOMB

doctor and insist on being tested for hepatitis C!
INDIVIDUALS PLEASE READ:
As much as we'd like to be able to provide information
and support to individuals who are incarcerated,
experience has shown that the majority of our mailings
to correctional facilities never reach those who need
them and are instead returned to us by the system.
We suggest instead that family members contact us and
make arrangements themselves to distribute our
information to their loved ones behind the walls.
Thank you for understanding.
