Hep B National Task Force Monthly Calls
September 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Monthly Calls. Every month on the Fourth Tuesday.
The National Task Force on Hepatitis B Focus on Asian Pacific Islander Americans is a volunteer-based national coalition that brings together scientists, health professionals, not-for-profit organizations, and concerned citizens in a concerted effort to eliminate the transmission of hepatitis B and decrease health disparities among those chronically infected. The Task Force was founded in 1997 and was funded by CDC until 2002. During that time, members of the Task Force contributed articles to the AAPI Journal of Health and presented position papers to the American Cancer Society. Following those years, the Task Force became involved with advocacy and screening recommendations for HBV infections. The Task Force has traditionally been physician-led.
The Executive Board works with Regional Directors, who work with local providers, to address the common concern of the target population across the United States.
