O'Liver Mascot Program

The Hepatitis B Foundation created O'Liver to raise public awareness about hepatitis B in a more friendly and positive way. In June 1997, Pa. Governor Tom Ridge declared the month "Hepatitis B Awareness Month" and during his press conference, O'Liver made his inaugural debut on the steps of the Pennsylvania Capitol in Harrisburg.

Since then, O'Liver has been a regular friendly presence in school vaccination programs, community screenings and health fairs, professional meetings, and the HBF patient conferences. He has mingled comfortably with celebrities, politicians, and the general public across Pennsylvania alike.
