Hep B Movie Night 2017

Mahalo for joining us!

In honor of 2017's Hepatitis Awareness Month and Asian Pacific Heritage Month in May, we co-hosted a movie night at the UH John A Burns School of Medicine to raise awareness about hepatitis B in Hawaii. 

We showed two short films that highlight the impact of this potentially deadly disease on our Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in Hawaii and elsewhere.  Watch the trailers for Be About It and the full film for The Educator.

Hepatitis C Mini Grant Award!

We are honored and excited to share the news below from the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR)

The CHOW Project is one of seven awardees of the highly competitive national NVHR Hepatitis C Project Booster Mini-Grants!  In collaboration with Hep Free Hawaii's Hepatitis Care Coordinator program, the CHOW Project will develop a confidential registry tracking all of its clients along the hepatitis C continuum of care.

We look forward to implementing this grant with CHOW to ensure that our most at-risk communities get linked to appropriate hepatitis C care and services!

Film Release: Kenson, the Educator

In honor of Hepatitis Awareness Month and Asian Pacific Heritage Month in May, we are proud to release The Educator.  This is the third film in the "Share Our Stories" campaign, which highlights local stories about people living or affected by hepatitis in Hawaii.

The Educator features Kenson Alik, a Marshallese man who shares his story about living with hepatitis B and dealing with liver transplant surgery.  The film also highlights Kenson's empowering journey to become an educator and advocate for his community.
