There is a UCSF article in the series UCSF: Committed to the City. It highlights the hepatitis B clinic at Chinatown Public Health Center which we provide interpretation services for and emphasizes how VHIO interpreters pools our unique skills with UCSF students. Click here to read more.
Last Saturday on October 15th was a busy day for VHIO.
At the annual Chinatown Health Fair, VHIO volunteers helped with the Alzheimer’s screening by managing clinic flow, facilitating intake, administering a neurological exam, and interpreting during a consultation with a doctor. VHIO volunteers served over 40 patients. A few volunteers also helped with the hearing services booth.
At the Flu Clinic in Chinese Hospital, we were able to help with the administration of flu and pneumococcal vaccines. Most of the patients were senior citizens, and about 200 patients received vaccinations at the clinic.
A special thanks to our volunteers that weekend!

Mt. Zion had over 20 new patients today, and most of them are Korean. Since we told them about the Chinatown Public Health Center clinic as well, we may start bringing Korean interpreters there as well. We will also work on translating the intake forms. It’s great that we are getting a new population in hep B clinics that we have not reached before!
