Viral Hepatitis Leaders
On May 19, 2012, the CalHEP Steering Committee honored several leaders in the fight against viral hepatitis at its policy meeting and legislative day in Sacramento.
Mimi Chang and Koy Parada, co-chairs of Hep B Free Los Angeles, received the annual Sherri Ziegler Community Service Award. This award is nominated by community members and chosen by the CalHEP Steering Committee to recognize outstanding community advocates and educators.
CalHEP also honored Assemblywoman Fiona Ma with its Legislative Champion Award in honor of her tireless efforts to end the viral hepatitis epidemic as a legislator, educator, and public spokesperson.
Finally, we recognized Martha Saly with a Community Champion Award for her leadership in co-founding CalHEP and her many years of federal, state, and local viral hepatitis advocacy.
Congratulations to all of this year's honorees!
