Description:

The Hepatitis B Initiative (HBI) is a non-profit project founded and organized by a coalition of students from Boston University, Brown University, Cornell University, Harvard College, Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, and Wellesley College to provide free education, screening, and vaccination for hepatitis B to the Boston community, especially to those who are uninsured and under the age of 24.

Our vision:
To inspire students into public health and grass roots community advocacy and bring together institutional partners who might not otherwise coordinate their efforts.

Our mission:
To enhance current hepatitis B education efforts by launching a culturally appropriate mass media and educational outreach campaign geared towards at-risk groups, particularly Asian Americans.

To provide free hepatitis B screening and vaccination for all those at risk.

To foster mentorships between students, community leaders, faculty, as well as local and national government leaders.

Note: Co-founder Leslie Hsu is expanding the program to a faith-based initiative in DC metro area.
