SF Hep B Collaborative Outreach
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.
