The American Legion joined forces with AbbVie, a global biopharmaceutical company, to launch TAKE ON HEP C. This nationwide movement has been bringing free hepatitis C (hep C) antibody testing to veterans and their communities since early August. The TAKE ON HEP C tour bus will make a stop in Daytona Beach, Fla., for Biketoberfest. The TAKE ON HEP C tour bus serves as a mobile veteran outreach center offering free hep C antibody testing with same-day results. Visit the tour bus Oct. 18-21 from 11 a.m. To 7 p.m. each day for free testing. Visit the American Legion website for more tour dates and locations and to learn more about the disease, exposure risks, symptoms and testing information.
