US Holiday On July 28 2014?

The following is a compilation of American federal holidays, federal observances, state holidays and other common patriotic and national observances and commemorations that apply to the United States during Monday, 2014-07-28:

  • World Hepatitis Day:

    [pro] This day is meant to raise awareness about preventing and treating viral hepatitis. According to the Presidential Proclamation,
    Nearly 400 million people worldwide are living with viral hepatitis, and more than 1 million people die each year from this disease. Yet because hepatitis often persists silently for years before revealing any symptoms, many -- including about two-thirds of the Americans who live with it -- are unaware of their infection status, which can lead to long-term liver damage and death. Today, on World Hepatitis Day, we join in these efforts to improve lives here at home and abroad by raising awareness of a silent epidemic and reaffirming our commitment to combat it.
    See also UN World Hepatitis Day.

Notes:

[pro] This is a special day designated by presidential proclamation.
