Storytelling Project- Do you know any potential storytellers? 
Ongoing Recruitment

We recognize that engaging community members in speaking out about obstacles to hepatitis B screening, prevention, and care is essential to reducing stigma, encouraging screening, and improving services for those living with hepatitis B.
 
The Hepatitis B Foundation is committed to representing a diversity of people and perspectives with this project. We're looking for women and men 18 or older who are willing to attend a four-day digital storytelling workshop, share a unique, personal story as a short video, and become a champion in their local communities to publicly share the collection of stories.  We're seeking stories that can include:
  • living with HBV - successes, challenges, stigma/discrimination, hopes, fears 
  • being a family member of someone living with HBV 
  • adopting a child with HBV (choosing a child with HBV) 
  • mother-to-child HBV transmission 
  • HBV-related liver cancer and/or a liver transplant 
  • vaccine success in preventing HBV (perinatal, child/teen, or adult) 
  • how HBV has impacted families across generations 
  • HBV-related treatment success and/or experiences with clinical trials
To learn more about the project or if interested in signing up to participate in the digital
storytelling workshop, please visit the project  website and complete the storyteller information packet

Additional information can be found from our webinar

Recap of October Events

Saturday, October 8th, 2016,  Hep B United Philadelphia  provided hepatitis B screening at the fourth annual  Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia's (CAGP) Health Fair.  A total of 26 medical students came from Asian Pacific Medical Student Associations (APAMSA) from Drexel College of Medicine and Thomas Jefferson University to assist with this event by providing BMI, blood glucose, vision, and assisting with the hepatitis B screening.  Other organizations represented came to provide flu shots for the community.  Hep B United Philadelphia, along with the medical students' assistance was able to provide just under 30 screenings. All community members screened were from the surrounding Cambodian community. Hep B United Philadelphia would like to thank CAGP for hosting a great event and all the volunteers and organizations in attendance. 

Hep B United Philadelphia on Tuesday, October 25th partnered with Hep B United, CDC's Division of Viral Hepatitis, and NASTAD (National Alliance of State and Territorial Aids Directors) to host a live twitter chat to bring awareness to Liver Cancer Awareness Month.  Here is a link to the twitter feed in case you missed it!
