Brown & Toland Supports Fight Against Hepatitis B

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- House speaker Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to speak about Hepatitis B on Saturday, joining Brown & Toland and a growing coalition of community groups and healthcare partners that are raising awareness about this silent epidemic.

Hepatitis B can cause liver cancer and damage, or if untreated, death. The San Francisco Hep B Free campaign, of which Brown & Toland is a part, promotes hepatitis B screening, vaccination and treatment among Asian American and Pacific Islanders (API) who are disproportionately infected. One in 10 has the virus.

"Hepatitis B is a serious but preventable disease. We at Brown & Toland are working hard to educate more people about this lesser known virus," said John Fisher, chair of the Hep B Free Marketing Committee and Brown & Toland marketing manager.

State Assemblywoman Fiona Ma and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom serve as co-chairs of the initiative. The campaign is raising awareness in San Francisco but has proven instrumental in changing national hepatitis B healthcare policy as well: As a result of Hep B Free's work, the CDC updated its guidelines on screening and prevention.

Brown & Toland Physicians recently earned an award for its work with the initiative. Working with Asian community organizations, political leaders and health partners (including California Pacific Medical Center, the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University and the San Francisco Department of Public Health), Brown & Toland helped coordinate the super hero-themed advertising campaign that highlights the importance of prevention and treatment.
