The Hep B Project traveled to Oakland's Laurel United Methodist Church today for another on-site screening. Today's event provided the unique chance to reach out to a specifically Pacific Islander population. Although, Pacific Islanders are one of the Project's target populations, they only make up a fraction of its total patients. Today proved an important step towards changing that.
Additionally, the event was attended my Kelly Banh, 2010-2011 Miss California National US. Kelly advocates across the state not only for Hepatitis B, but also for community disaster education and first aid with the American Red Cross.
Below are a few pictures from the event. Thank you again, to Kelly, Ying, Kathy, and all the volunteers that made this event possible. Over 20 were registered for our on-site screenings!
