On Sunday February 13th, Viet Nam Medical Assistance Program (VNMAP) with the support of AAHI, held a hepatitis B screening and education day, titled "SMASH B". The event was a great success! Over 100 participants were able to receive hepatitis B screenings. The participants first attended a health education lecture conducted by Dr. Loc Le and then proceeded to get their screenings. Following the screening, the participants completed evaluation forms and then trickled over to AAHI's outreach table. AAHI provided health education on various topics including cancer, osteoporosis, hepatitis B and tobacco. As an interactive activity, AAHI brought a wheel of health education focusing on tobacco. The wheel was a big hit! Many participants enjoyed spinning the wheel and answering the questions, it was a wonderful method of engaging the participants. AAHI had the opportunity to educate most of the participants on the various health topics, it was a fulfilling event for AAHI staff, health promoters and interns!
A special thanks to VNMAP and all the volunteers for making this event such a success!
