We kicked off the start of the semester with a screening on 8/20 at the Dallas Chinese Community Center! We got to talk to multiple people about how Hepatitis B is acquired, the importance of screening, and who should get screened for the disease. Great thanks to Dr. Lee for volunteering his time to help with phlebotomy and answering questions about viral hepatitis! We ended up screening over 20 patients and will be following up with each of them with their lab test results this Saturday 9/3 at our Linkage-to-Care event.
We have multiple screenings lined up for later this semester, starting with the Dallas Police Department Asian Health Fair on 10/1 from 8 am to 1 pm. Look out for other future screenings in the "Upcoming" section of our website!
As always, if you would like to work with us, please email us, message us on Facebook, or fill out the form on our homepage.
