Listen to the Silence 2011

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

“Listen to the Silence” (also known as LTS) is an annual Asian American issues conference organized by the Asian American Students’ Association (AASA) at Stanford University. This year, Team HBV participated by tabling an information booth, where its members worked hard to educate this year’s participants about Hepatitis B awareness. After tabling, members of Team HBV attended a workshop put on by the Stanford Asian American Graduate Students’ Association (AAGSA) featuring Assemblywoman and Honorary Chair of the San Francisco Hep B Free Campaign, Fiona Ma. She spoke of her experiences in the California State Assembly and how students can play important roles in public service. And to show us her support, Fiona Ma sported this year’s Team HBV shirt during her talk!

ZUMBATHON! 2010 LIVERight

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

The Asian Liver Center’s 2010 LIVERight annual fundraising took the form of a Zumbathon this year! What is a zumbathon, you ask? For our purposes, it is all the best instructors in the greater Bay Area and about 500 enthusiasts coming together to participate in the “hottest new dance fitness craze.”  Check out more about it here.

Stanford  Team HBV provided the education component of the event, hosting an education booth and handing out informational materials and prizes to participants.  Team HBV also provided on-campus advertising and recruiting, and even hosted a pre-zumbathon workshop in White Plaza!

National Team HBV Conference 2010

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Stanford Team HBV was thrilled to host the 2010 National Team HBV Conference in November.  Chapters from across the country attended, from as far away as Harvard and Cornell to our neighbors across the Bay at Berkeley.  It was a very successful 3-day event, with most of our members getting to participate in at least one day’s activities, and some attending the entire conference.  I think some of the most valuable things we took away from the conference as a group was a lot of new ideas for outreach events, especially after hearing stories from other chapters about what they have done that has been successful in the past (and what hasn’t!).  I also really appreciated our discussions about some of the concrete things necessary to plan successful outreach events – I definitely noticed these techniques showing up in presentations from our frosh interns, which is great :)

Overall, all members worked really hard to make sure the event was a success, from cutting out pieces of felt fabric to make hepatitis B “plushies” (thanks, Cornell chapter!) to moderating panel discussions.  Our chapter also received the “Best Outreach Project Award” for our 2010 Hepatitis B Awareness Week, which was awesome! Next year we plan to sweep the awards :P teehee
