Jay Shen, Sungyoun Chun (both Community Health Sciences); Pearl Kim (Healthcare Administration), Seong-min Park (Criminal Justice), Haneul Choi (Honors), and Ji Won Yoo (Medicine) recently published an article, “Relationship Between Acute Hepatitis C and the Opioid Epidemic” in the American Journal of Medicine. This paper was a collaboration between UNLV and the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson. In response to the opioid epidemic across the country, this article suggests the screening of hepatitis C must expand to the all American adults from the currently existing baby-boomer cohort born between 1945 and 1965.
