Students and public health experts have joined forces with cutting-edge artists for the launch of B HERE (, a new campaign designed to raise awareness of hepatitis B, a life-threatening liver disease that affects up to 2 million people in the United States - many of whom are Asian American.

The B HERE campaign features two educational and entertaining events:

Multi-media Art Exhibit featuring up-and-coming young artists
highlighting different aspects of hepatitis B

Evening of Live Performances featuring some of the nation's most entertaining young Asian American music, dance and comedy acts, including emcee and YouTube sensation KevJumba, comedienne HappySlip and KABA Modern, an award-winning Hip Hop dance act that originated at UC Irvine and rose to fame on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew.
