Team HBV Collegiate Chapters engages students to prevent and control hepatitis B and liver cancer in their communities. In the fight against this eradicable disease, our primary goal is to empower others with knowledge about hepatitis B and their own status. Through targeted educational outreach, we dispel stigma and alert at-risk people to opportunities for prevention. Through advocacy, we raise awareness of this health disparity among members of the public, policy-makers, and future leaders. Through community partnerships, we promote and facilitate prevention activities, such as accessible hepatitis B screenings and vaccinations.
Founded in 2006 by Jian Zheng and Amanda Wong, the Collegiate Chapters have expanded exponentially under the umbrella of the Jade Ribbon Campaign and the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University. The founding chapters at Cornell and Duke have grown to include chapters at colleges and universities across the nation.
