SF Hep B Collaborative Outreach

July 14, 2011 1 comment

Due to low patient turnout at Mt. Zion hep B clinics, VHIO volunteers will help UCSF volunteers with flyering. We are targeting the Richmond area, which is a bus-ride away from Mt. Zion. Please help with these community outreach efforts on Saturday July 30th, from 1-3pm. Mt. Zion might close if we continue to have few new patients!

As part of the new targeted neighborhood outreach approach, the San Francisco Hepatitis B Collaborative (SFHBC) is planning a screening in the Tenderloin in September.

Based on data assessment, SFHBC is looking into targeting the Southeastern part of San Francisco, as hep B screening has been relatively low there. SFHBC is also planning to reach recent immigrant populations, who are less likely to have been vaccinated and more likely to be chronic carriers.

Hep B Clinic Outreach

July 1, 2011 1 comment

Due to low patient flow, we are implementing new outreach efforts, including a Wong Fu video to target the younger population and contacting other hep B clinics in SF to set up collaborations. Please contact us if you can assist with contacting clinics! UCSF SFHBC students are working full time and they need our help.
