The Hep B Project attended a health fair today geared specifically towards the truckers and their families. The event was another great opportunity to outreach to Alameda County and resulted in the screening of over 20 individuals!
The Hep B Project was busy today across Alameda County with two education events, each with the goal of spreading awareness of both the disease and our services.Today, LifeLong Medical Care hosted a community walk ending in a health fair where the Hep B Project tabled. The event was a great opportunity especially to network with other health care professionals as we work towards expanding within Alameda County.
Meanwhile across town, other volunteers headed to the Shiloh Church Fair today to provide education to the families of the 1,000 school children of in attendance.
New volunteer Stephen Huynh shared, "It was my first event so I didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be a fun day. Talking to people with questions, seeing the little kids running around, and working with the friendly staff at Shiloh Church was a great way to see part of what The Hep B Project does.
Below are a few pictures of our volunteers as they outreach to the community.
Wednesdays and Saturday clinics have been going well and the Hep B Project is nearing an exciting new milestone: 1,000 patients screened in the past two years! A special thanks to all our volunteers, alumni, community contacts, and of course Kathy Ahoy and Dr. William Wallin for all the hardwork and support that have made this possible.
As we transition from being a new project to a more established one, we are looking to expand to new places. We are working on establishing a new clinic or clinic location soon to help us outreach to even more areas within Alameda County.
