In collaboration with Hep Free Hawai`i, this public service announcement was written, directed, and produced by Peter Nguyen, a senior at Farrington High School in Kalihi.

Peter created this video to raise awareness about hepatitis B among his Asian and Pacific Islander classmates. He believed that the power of storytelling is essential to making change. Mahalo, Peter!
