VHIO helped the California Pacific Medical Center at their hepatitis B and C screening at the annual Asian Heritage Festival. The CPMC’s Hep B and C screening went really well. Over 90,000 people attended the festival, and approximately 50 people were screened. The American Liver Foundation passed out surveys and educated the public on liver disease.
