At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Discuss the epidemiology of acute and chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in the US
  • Describe the long-term outcomes of chronic HBV infection
  • Summarize CDC immunization recommendations for adult populations at risk for HBV infection
