About

The investigators aim to determine the prevalence of hepatitis C in the adult children of female baby boomers. During the years baby boomers were becoming pregnant, hepatitis C testing was either not available or was not standard of care. Because of this, participants' children may be unaware of participants' risk of hepatitis C.
