Asian Americans on Healthcare Reform & Hepatitis B

Posted in Hepatitis B and Liver Cancer, Of Interest by missamyyu on September 4, 2009

Hello Everyone,

Read a great NPR transcript of Congressmen Judy Chu and Mike Honda on healthcare reform.  Judy Chu mentions hepatitis B and it’s importance in heatlhcare reform for Asian and Pacific Islanders.  Especially pertinent since under our current healthcare program, those with pre-existing conditions are often denied healthcare.  My own mother suffers from this problem due to her chronic hep B infection, so it is great to hear a politicion speaking out about this issue.
