SFSU raises Hep B Awareness with student social media project

Students enrolled in Professor Grace Yoo's Asian American studies course at San Francisco State University, AAS 680 Community Changes and Development, were involved in raising awareness through the use of social media on several community issues. Students created blogs and YouTube videos to raise awareness on several different community issues. Several students chose to focus their efforts on the San Francisco Hep B Free Campaign. They were involved in creating innovative, engaging and fun YouTube videos that would encourage Asian Americans to get screened and tested for Hepatitis B.
