ACT Hepatitis B Screening Event Recap
After months of planning, AAHI collaborated with the Korean Community Service Center of Greater Washington (KCSC) to implement phase one of the comprehensive hepatitis B project. On Saturday, November 12, AAHI, KCSC, Global Mission Church (GMC), and a robust group of volunteers coordinated the screening day event. Prior to having their blood drawn for a hepatitis B test, community members attended a culturally and linguistically tailored health education lecture on hepatitis B. All participants will regroup in about one months time to receive their screening results, have a one-on-one screening consultation with a physician, and receive a free vaccination if needed. AAHI thanks KCSC, GMC, the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), and all of the volunteers for a smooth and successful event.
