ChinHealthFair

HepCBC’s booth at the Chinese Health Fair — at Bonsor Recreation Complex, Burnaby BC, September 18, 2016.

POINT-OF-CARE oral HCV tests and FIBROSCANS were offered in CHINESE or ENGLISH to visitors at HepCBC’s hepatitis C Info Booth this year through our cooperation with the Vancouver Infectious Diseases Centre!

We brought 3 wonderful volunteer interpreters, pamphlets, and 3 people who have been cured. VIDC brought Dr. Brian Conway plus 3 great staff, 85 oral Point-of-Care HCV tests (which were gone within 2-1/2 hours) and a Fibroscan Machine! It was an exciting and worthwhile day, both of our organizations agreed!

THANKS to our generous sponsors, Lupin Pharma Canada Limited and Gilead Sciences Canada, Inc.
