July 26th – August 1st: World Hepatitis Week
28 July is #WorldHepatitisDay so all week we will be commemorating. Worldwide, 290 million people are living with viral hepatitis unaware. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost. On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July, we call on people from across the world to take action and raise awareness to find the “missing millions”.

All month: Sarcoma Awareness Month
#SarcomaAwarenessMonth runs for the whole of July. Did you know that bone sarcomas affect less than 500 people in the UK each year, making it a very rare form of cancer? Also, not all bone cancers will be sarcomas. Soft tissue sarcomas can affect any part of the body; they develop in supporting or connective tissue such as the muscle, nerves, fatty tissue, and blood vessels.
There is lots of information to find in your ClinicalKey account about this disease here: https://www.clinicalkey.com/#!/search/sarcoma
