Health Education & Screenings
Simply knowing you’re at greater risk for certain health conditions isn’t enough to protect you. You need to know how you can prevent them, what signs and symptoms to watch for, and what treatments are available if you have a health condition.
As part of our effort to support your health, we offer:
- Free blood pressure screening every Friday morning at our Mountain View campus, no appointment needed.
- A variety of wellness talks, classes and other throughout the year to address health issues that impact the Chinese community.

Hepatitis B Vaccine
If you test negative, you may want to consider getting vaccinated against the disease. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself from developing the disease. If you have medical insurance, visit your primary care provider. The hepatitis B vaccine is covered by most insurance plans. If you do not have insurance, a free vaccination may be available to you from the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health.
