Korean Outreach Update
We are continuing to volunteer at monthly KCHS clinics. The BMI/BP clinic takes place at the recently established Oakland Senior Center. The Hep B vaccination clinic has been focusing on outreach to recruit more patients. It seems difficult for Koreans to come to the hour-long vaccination since many have to work on weekends, or they forget. Any outreach ideas are appreciated.
We are also continuing with the monthly Alta Bates Mammogram clinic, which includes a verbal interview and breast examination with the nurse practioner, in addition to a mammogram taken by a technician.
There is a Korean Cancer Conference on September 10th. This is the first time that this conference is being held, and we need as much help as we can get! There is a good chance there would be much
Korean interpretation involved.
