Project Recess is a community event held each year in October. It is an event where multiple booths are set up and children from all over the community are invited to come have a fun time with games and prizes as well as learn some new information at the various tables set up around the event. APAMSA each year does a hand washing and brushing etiquette table to teach kids proper techniques to stay healthy. More information to come at the next meeting regarding volunteering opportunities and specifics on dates and times. 

Hepatitis B Screening

posted Jun 30, 2010, 3:17 PM by APAMSA UMKC   [ updated Sep 16, 2012, 12:29 PM ]

Every year we get a grant to host a Hepatitis B Screening for the Vietnamese community. This screening usually occurs sometime in June. This year we got a big grant, but we did not receive it till July so we have pushed back the screening to this January! Since we have more than tripled our grant money this year we have set a goal to screen at least 300 patients. Lauren Thai, Setu Patel, and Tiffany Mao will be the chairs for this event and are currently in the process of planning the event. Look out for more opportunities to help in the near future as we get closer to the event!
