    March Madness with HBV March 30, 2012

    For the March event, we called all members to join us in learning about the basic facts about HBV.

    Seniors passed down their positions to the mini board (executive committee); and therefore, there were

    empty slots for the executive committee next year. This event was crucial for those underclassmen who

    were considering to be on board next year. After our HBV Basics Presentation given by our executive

    committee, we showed a movie Despicable Me!

    Ice skating Round 2 January 27, 2012

    HBV teamed up with CASC to hold a dual fundraiser at the Ice Palace in Yorba Linda. It was a huge

    success, as our club got over $280 from the event. Major thanks to everyone who showed up!

    Chinese New Year Booth,

    San Francisco. DVHS Team HBV encouraged its members to participate in the Asian Liver Centers annual Chinese New Year outreach booth. Six members with knowledge of multiple languages were able to attend and volunteer at the event.

    Milk Tea Sales,

    Quad at Dougherty Valley High School, 03/02/12 + 03/30/12 Our school sold milk tea after school and reached almost all the students at our high school, educating them about hepatitis B facts as they were waiting in line and buying milk tea; this also helped us raise funds for future events.

    Team HBV Outreach Celebration

    Date: 04/05/12; Location: Advisors Classroom During the week before spring break, our club held a party in our advisors room in order to encourage non-members to attend and restore motivation to our team members. This also increased hype about our club and helped gain more members.

    Goodbye Mark Poster Campaign

    Date: 06/05/12; Location: Local businesses around the community As part of the national campaign for awareness about hepatitis B, Team HBV at Dougherty Valley High School helped spread the word about Dr. Mark, a doctor who died of HBV, by

    posting posters around local businesses. These posters contained a QR code that linked to goodbyemark.com, a website with more information about hepatitis B and Dr. Mark.

    Overall Summary and Reflection

    Although our club had slightly less events for the spring semester, with AP testing season and multiple school recesses, I believe that most of our goals were met and that we have maintained our reputation as a large and active body of motivated volunteers excited to help the hepatitis B cause. Future plans would involve gaining more members at club day next year and transitioning to a better organized hierarchy that would allow for an increased level of participation in the organizing of outreach events.

    Overall Summary and Reflection

    This spring Team HBV Fresno attended Amerasia Night at CSU Fresno State. Amerasia night

    included many different cultural performances from Chinese opera and Dragon dancing to more

    modern Korean songs. We had a table out front and passed out brochures to people before they

    went to the performance. Wearing out bright green shirts we definitely made our presence known

    at the event.

    The next event that we went to was Asian Fest at Fresno City College on April 28. We also had

    a table at this event and an informational board that I made myself. You will be able to see it in

    the pictures. We also hung some HBV facts on nearby trees to draw in peoples attention.

    On the same day I had my own booth at the Hmong Cancer Coalition in Fresno. This event was

    perfect for Team HBV because it focused on health awareness in the lower income Asian

    communities. They even provided at translator to help me communicate with the Hmong

    speaking people. I think what I liked most about this event was that everyone was given a card

    which they had to get signed at every booth to enter into a drawing. This encouraged more

    people to come to the HBV booth and listen to what we had to say.

    I also attended both the Fresno City Council meeting and the Fresno County Board meeting in

    May where I received proclamations for Hepatitis B awareness day and week!

    Overall Reflection and Summary

    After a tough fall semester, Team HBV at Gunn wanted to make a difference in our community. Since this year was the first year for most of our members, we still did not know what to do and what to expect. We came up with ideas for events such as Hep B awareness sporting event where we can have a sport game such as football of basketball with Hep B theme. We wanted to do a lot of our awareness around sports. We felt that in order to spread more awareness, we needed to base of our outreach events on something students would participate in. We tried our best to approach this goal but in the end we couldn't do much. We held two events during our spring semester. First we held a PMT sale to promote more knowledge about Hepatitis B, and then for the petition to Mr. Obama, we held a signing event to gain signatures. Honestly, we all thought we could have done better but at times to actually make an event happens can be really difficult. At the end of the year, we decided that we could do much better next year.

    Hep B PMT Awareness Sale

    Gunn High, March 23rd During this event, we bought 150 pearl milk teas and taped strips of Hepatitis B facts on each one. Fact such as One out of 10 are infected with Hepatitis B. We also hung up posters around school with more facts; during the sale, if students memorized just one of them they will receive a discount. This turned out amazing, every student memorized facts about Hepatitis B and we thought we pervaded awareness around Gunn High. We sold out the PMT within 20 min, we raised 122 dollars and impacted our entire school. Some flaws we can improve on was planning, I felt that we had poor planning of this sale. With the poor planning, the sale was at times out of control. During the sale, it was very chaotic as everyone was trying to buy our PMT. To improve this, we can plan every aspect of the sale to make sure flaws like this will not happen again.

    Petition Signatures

    Gunn High School, May 25th For the petition to President Obama, we decided to hold a petition signing. We set up a table near the most crowded place on campus and cal
