Viral Hepatitis Summits

What Are Our Summits?

Hepatitis Foundation International sponsors one day Summits that target healthcare practitioners, nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, public health professionals, social workers and counselors to improve the identification and management of hepatitis patients.

HFI’s Viral Hepatitis Summits are recognized for offering high value for its conference participants and exhibitors — and offers participants the opportunity to raise the visibility of their company and reach key healthcare professionals and others working with those affected by viral hepatitis.
