Book “Einstein’s Table” Tells Story of Hepatitis B

DOYLESTOWN, PA (May 2012) – The inspirational story of the Hepatitis B Foundation of Doylestown, Pa., has been chronicled in a new book, “Einstein’s Table: The Search to Find a Cure for Chronic Hepatitis B,” authored by Kimberly Jungkind, a Foundation board member. The book’s release comes during May which is National Hepatitis Awareness Month. There will be a book signing offered during the Foundation’s “B Informed” Parent Conference, a free event for parents of children with hepatitis B, to be held on May 19, 2012 at Holiday Inn Express Midtown in Philadelphia.

The only national nonprofit organization dedicated solely to finding a cure for hepatitis B and improving the quality of life for those affected worldwide, the Hepatitis B Foundation began its journey more than 20 years ago. Founders Paul and Janine Witte and Dr. Timothy and Joan Block were moved by the plight of a young family affected by hepatitis B. Dismayed that the affected family had nowhere to turn for support, the Wittes and Blocks gathered at Albert Einstein’s guest cottage in Bucks County, Pa., for a brainstorming session, and the Hepatitis B Foundation was born.
