Listen to the Silence, sponsored by the Asian American Students’ Association, is an annual Asian American issues conference held at Stanford and brings in student attendees from throughout the West coast. This year, Team HBV held a workshop entitled “Catching the ‘Silent Killer’ in the API Community” featuring Arcadi Kolchak and Professor Thomas Quigg.
Mr. Kolchak is a District Office Representative/Manager for California State Senator Elaine Alquist, as well as a Program Coordinator for the Santa Clara County Hep B Free campaign. Professor Quigg, who holds an MA in Biology, is a lecturer of Biological Sciences at San Jose State University and lab instructor at Evergreen Valley College. These two individuals led an engaging workshop on HBV prevalence in APIs, while presenting information on recent political action by US Representative Mike Honda. Stanford Team HBV members explained the role of the Asian Liver Center and Team HBV in the campaign for Hep B eradication.
Here are a few photos from the workshop:
After the workshop, Team HBV members participated in the Action Opportunities Fair. We passed out cute buttons, health educated and promoted our Screening Initiative Program (SIP), which you can find out more below!
Stanford Team HBV extends its appreciation to the LTS planning committee and AASA for putting on this great event.
