Chronic hepatitis B is called a "silent killer" because it often causes no symptoms while it damages the liver. The disease can be diagnosed with a simple blood test and treated with new medicines -- yet as many as two-thirds of Asian Americans with chronic hepatitis B do not know they are infected, putting their health and that of their loved ones at risk. The B HERE campaign is sponsored by Gilead Sciences, a maker of medicines for chronic hepatitis B, with support from campus partners the Asian American Association, Pi Alpha Phi and the Vietnamese Student Association.
-- Multi-media Art Exhibit featuring up-and-coming young artists highlighting different aspects of this life-threatening disease -- Evening of Live Performances featuring some of the nation's most entertaining young Asian American music, dance and comedy acts, including emcee and YouTube sensation KevJumba, comedienne HappySlip and KABA Modern, an award-winning Hip Hop dance act featured on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew.
