This weekend The Hep B Project was invited to table at Laney College's Youth Health Fair, sponsored by Assemblyman Swanson.
About 500 people were expected to attend and though we did not encounter a large population of APIs, volunteers were able to network with many organizations at the event. In fact, about 4-5 representatives from different organizations came to our table and asked us to present at their workshops.
Additionally, we were able to meet some members of Volunteer Health Interpreters Organization as they were helping out Alameda County Hep B Free who shared a table with us. Overall, this was a very unexpectedly successful event.
"This event was a lot of new experiences for me," said volunteer Jin Yang. "Trying to build connections for promoting The Hep B Project was one thing, but the health fair itself made me realize that there are so many people trying to raise awareness for a number of different health issues."
