Through our efforts over THE last four and a half months, Hep B Free SCC was able to SUCCESSFULLY create a position at the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health specifically for hepatitis B prevention. Hep B Free SCC was able to get unanimous support from the Board of Supervisors during the Health and Hospital Committee budget hearing on June 17th, 2013 which passed officially AT the budget hearing on June 21st, 2013.
We would like to thank SANTA CLARA COUNTY Supervisor KEN Yeager from District 4 for being a champion for the issue and cause by adopting this as one of his inventory items for Fiscal Year 14. Without his initial support, this would not be possible. We would also like to thank the rest of the Board of Supervisors: Supervisor Cortese; Supervisor Wasserman; and Supervisor Simitian, for taking the time to meet with us and listen to our community’s needs.
