Hepatitis B Foundation Sponsors Two-Day Educational Conference for Children and Adults at Risk for Deadly Liver Virus
Date:6/25/2008

Event Marks One-Year Anniversary of Asian Pacific Liver Center at St. Vincent Medical Center.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2008 -- Liver disease specialists from throughout California will participate in a public health education conference, sponsored by the Hepatitis B Foundation, at St. Vincent Medical Center on June 27 and 28, where they will speak to an estimated 200 people who live and work in the Downtown area.

The conference is designed so that Friday afternoon will be spent focusing on the management of pediatric HBV and Saturday will be spent focusing on the management of adult HBV, particularly in the Asian-American community, which is disproportionately affected by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). HBV is a chronic and progressive liver disease that leads to cirrhosis and liver cancer.

Phil Rosenthal, M.D., director of Pediatric Hepatology at UCSF Childrens Hospital, will be the featured speaker at the Friday, June 27 session with a presentation about how to treat children with HBV.
California Assemblywoman Fiona Ma (12th Dist.) will be special guest speaker at the Saturday, June 28 event, where she will address some of the legislative efforts underway to increase funding for HBV screening, vaccination and treatment.

Tse-Ling Fong, M.D., program director of the Asian Pacific Liver Center (APLC), St. Vincent Medical Center, Ho Bae, M.D., medical director of the APLC, St. Vincent Medical Center, and Robert Gish, M.D., hepatologist at California Pacific Medical Center, will provide expert presentations about state-of-the-art care and treatment for HBV.
Breakout in-language educational sessions will be held for Chinese- and Korean-speaking attendees on Saturday afternoon. Free HBV screenings will be available for all attendees.

Afternoon workshops will focus on the facts about hepatitis B, healthy nutrition, maintaining liver health, and parenting tip
