Team HBV collaborates with the Asian Pacific Liver Center, a non-profit organization that holds free Hepatitis B screenings in underserved API communities. We rent vans to volunteer at these screenings. In addition, we give presentations at local schools and at general meetings of other campus organizations. We also hold a yearly awareness concert during national Hepatitis B awareness week (May 19-26). Medical students are invited to talk about the disease and various performance groups are invited for entertainment. Most recently, we had KABA Modern perform at our concert. As a relatively new organization, we are ambitious and excited for our future projects which include a physician shadowing program and the use of viral media to reach more people.
Support for our organization will help us achieve our goals faster and work towards a Hep B free future.
