About the Course:

Jade Ribbon Campaign DeCal

Join the Jade Ribbon Campaign DeCal and the fight against Hepatitis B and Liver Cancer in the Asian and Asian-American population! The hepatitis B virus (HBV) affects approximately 10% of Asians and Asian-Americans. HBV is the major cause of liver cirrhosis and liver cancer, and is one of the greatest health disparities facing Asian communities worldwide.

Sponsored by Berkeley’s own Team HBV, the first collegiate student organization dedicated to community outreach, education, and advocacy for HBV and liver cancer prevention and control, the Jade Ribbon Campaign DeCal will provide opportunities for students to understand hepatitis B issues, learn from experts about how to market a public health campaign, and gain real-world outreach experience. Students will also gain invaluable life skills through taking part in an actual, resumé-quality outreach project – that is, they will plan, write proposals and interview for grants (actual grant money will be distributed), advertise, AND execute their own project during the designated Hepatitis B Awareness Week in April along with Team HBV members.

This course is a priceless opportunity for those students concerned with medical, Asian-American and public health issues.
