Team HBV at UC Berkeley, along with other chapters across the U.S., is dedicated to raising awareness of the disproportionately high incidence of hepatitis B (HBV) and liver cancer among the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community. We aren’t just a club- we’re a community, a family, a partnership. We are a cause.
Spring 2015 Events
Every year Team HBV chapters far and wide celebrate Hepatitis B Awareness Week (HBAW) by hosting daily events and activities. HBAW at UC Berkeley is being held this year from April 6-10, 10am to 2pm on Upper Sproul Plaza!
Be on the look out for our table and members actively sharing their knowledge on a misunderstood and largely underrepresented disease! We’ll be out all week with goodies in hand! 🙂
