Hepatitis is a well-known disease of the liver and for which people receive vaccines as children. But the shots only combat the A and B variants. In this week’s Friday Forum, WNIJ’s Chase Cavanaugh has more on Hepatitis C and how it’s being managed across northern Illinois.

This April, we're asking listeners to "Spring Into Action" and support the programs they love on WNIJ and WNIU. Our goal is to raise $150,000 from April 2 - 22 without interrupting programs. Donate now to sustain the programs you rely on and grab yourself a branded camping mug, carry-all bag, or pair of "sustainer socks."
