This project explores successful ways to communicate health information for private and public consumption, specifically ways to counter the stigmatization and other barriers to health care associated with hepatitis C infected Vietnam veterans. In doing so, I produced two documents: the first, "What Every Veteran Should Know About Hepatitis C," is a revision of an American Liver Foundation brochure; the second, "Countering the Vet Hepidemic" attempts to capture the style of the New York Times Magazine, a general interest publication.
