As you may know, October is Liver Health Month, and I’d like to invite you to a Liver Awareness Reception that is being held at the Omni Hotel in downtown LA on October 8 from 4:30 – 6:30pm. It’s a press event, with the goal of getting coverage in our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) newspapers about the importance of getting all AAPIs tested, vaccinated and treated for Hepatitis B. Betty Tse, Hep B Free’s spokeswoman, will be sharing her courageous story about how Hepatitis B has affected her family, and local physicians will be our expert panelists who will educate members of the media about Hepatitis B, a disease that continues to disproportionately affect so many in our community.
I hope that you will be able to join us at this reception. Please let me know at your earliest convenience so that I may reserve a seat for you.
