Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are launching a virtual format of our outreaches in order to continue providing free health screenings and education to our patients. On Sunday, September 26th, we will be assisting patients with registering for viral hepatitis B and C testing.
Registered patients will be able to visit a local laboratory to get tested for specific silent diseases. The laboratories will be adhering to CDC safety guidelines to ensure smooth and safe visits.
Although we are accepting a limited number of people on a first-come, first-served basis for the first Virtual Outreach, individuals who have not been chosen will be contacted for future Virtual Outreaches.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPCOMING EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

VIRAL HEPATITIS B VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
APHF screens for a variety of silent diseases that disproportionately impact underserved communities. If you are interested in learning more about one of these diseases, Dr. Richard Andrews will be hosting a virtual conference on hepatitis B. This disease especially highlights disparities in healthcare as over half of all afflicted individuals are of Asian, Asian Pacific, and African descent. We encourage you to attend the conference, learn more about hepatitis B, and ask any questions!
As COVID-19 cases continue to emerge across the United States, the Asian Pacific Health Foundation is committed to prioritizing volunteer and patient safety. To minimize physical contact and reduce possible opportunities for infection, we will be suspending all outreaches until further notice.
We understand that our outreaches provide many patients with basic medical screenings and follow-up medical care that they otherwise might not receive elsewhere. However, with the cancellation of these outreaches, we hope to minimize physical contact and subsequently reducing possible infective events.
We will continue to assess the current coronavirus climate and will send out a registration email for outreaches should they be confirmed.
As a reminder, if you are exhibiting any cold/flu-like symptoms such as fever, body aches, cough, sore throat, and runny nose, please stay home and refrain from interacting with those around you. Additionally, it is especially important to practice good hand hygiene prior to eating or touching your face.
