b here campaign at uc davis

As I've mentioned before, B Here is a new campaign designed to raise awareness of hepatitis B, a life-threatening liver disease that affects up to 2 million in the United States -- many of whom are Asian Americans. 1 in 10 Asian Americans suffer from Hepatitis B in the U.S.

A two-part live awareness event, B HERE is a university tour that kicked off earlier this month in UC Irvine and then traveled to the University of Houston. It's making its final stop at UC Davis this Tuesday, October 27 and Wednesday, October 28.

The event consists of an exhibit featuring artwork from up-and-coming young Asian American artists and a live concert featuring rising Asian American musicians and performers like KevJumba and HappySlip, KABA Modern, David Choi, as well as many more. Here are some details:
