News & Announcements

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the most common blood-borne illness, affecting three to five million Americans, and many of them don’t even know it. Philadelphia has a high rate of HCV among its residents, who many times have limited access to screening and treatment. So how do you get help to the people who need it the most? You go door to door. A new study, led by a Drexel University College of Medicine researcher and recently published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, shows that when advocates made a focused effort in a medically underserved area, they were able to help patients get screened, diagnosed and treated.


As the epidemic of community violence swells in U.S. cities, one promising place for intervention and prevention of future violence is the emergency departments of hospitals.

Infectious diseases — like HIV/AIDS, measles, hepatitis, influenza, malaria and Ebola — are collectively the second leading cause of death globally, according to the Infectious Diseases Society of America. In the United States alone, the burden of infectious diseases is almost as high; infectious diseases are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., killing about 170,000 people each year.


Drexel University College of Medicine’s Department of Surgery was recently awarded a Susan G. Komen Philadelphia® Community Grant to advance critical and life-saving breast cancer early detection, treatment and support for patients for 2015-2016.
