FOR CLINICIANS

Clinician's Honor Roll

The San Francisco Hep B Free - Bay Area Clinican's Honor Roll was a program that acknowledged primary care clinicians who signed a pledge to screen patients at risk for chronic Hepatitis B infections in accordance with CDC guidelines. The goal was to have 90% of an estimated 1,500 primary care providers pledge. 

This initiative was tracked by Health Matters in San Francisco and was the only citywide health indicator that measures clinician awareness. It was coordinated through the AsianWeek Foundation in partnership with Communicable Disease Control and Prevention at the San Francisco Dept. of Public Health.

 

In the fall of 2009, the San Francisco Hep B Free - Bay Area campaign began publication of the Hep B Free Clinician's Honor Roll to promote the growing number of doctor's offices that are testing patients and working to prevent liver cancer and Hepatitis B disease.
