SPECIAL THANKS

The “thread that ties it all together” consists of the people, especially those living with hepatitis B, donors, partners, doctors and others who provide our inspiration and drive our mission.

THESE PEOPLE HAVE PLAYED MAJOR ROLES IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HEPATITIS B

Below are just a few of the individuals we would like to thank. We will feature additional contributors in coming weeks.

Joan & Tim Block

Joan and Tim Block, along with Paul and Janine Witte, established the Foundation in 1991. The couple resides in Doylestown PA and first met in Philadelphia, when Joan was a nurse at a major hospital and Tim was a faculty member at Thomas Jefferson University. They recently were honored with a major new award for advocacy by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, as reported here.

Baruch S Blumberg

Baruch S. Blumberg, MD, D.Phil., won the Nobel Prize in 1976. He had immense curiosity and energy which lead to the hallmarks of his scientific persona. Described as a leading light in the scientific community and a great humanitarian, Dr. Blumberg identified the hepatitis B virus and created the first vaccine to prevent infection with the virus.
