CAGP-Saturday, October 8th Screening Event

Hep B United Philadelphia on Saturday, October 8th provided hepatitis B screening at the fourth annual Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia’s (CAGP) Health Fair.  A total of 26 medical students came from APAMSA groups from Drexel College of Medicine and Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University to assist with this event by providing BMI, blood glucose, vision and assisting with the hepatitis B screening.  Other organizations represented came to provide flu shots for the community and health information.  Hep B United Philadelphia with the medical students’ assistance provided just under 30 screenings. All community members screened were from the surrounding Cambodian community. Hep B United Philadelphia will be in touch with individuals screened by providing results and linkage to care for those in need within the next couple of weeks.  Hep B United Philadelphia would like to thank CAGP for hosting a great event and all the volunteers and organizations in attendance!
