B Free CEED has ongoing training resources that are available to health professionals and students interested in learning more about hepatitis B.  

B Free CEED Training Module

B Free CEED is developing an online hepatitis B training module that focuses on improving knowledge of hepatitis B and improving confidence in identifying candidates for screening, interpreting test results, and managing patients with chronic hepatitis B.  The module targets health providers who service API populations and other communities where the prevalence of hepatitis B is high.

B Free CEED Learning Exchange Seminar Series

The Learning Exchange Seminar Series is intended to help increase capacity among health researchers, providers, and community organizations serving API communities to address HBV-related disparities. National experts, such as Janet Zola from SF Hep B Free and Geoff Beckett from the CDC, have shared information and strategies to increase understanding and dissemination of best practices for outreach and care in these communities. Experts from our partner organizations have also conducted special Learning Exchanges for B Free CEED partners to help build capacity for our programming, including Logic Model building and research trainings.

Health Disparities Research Training Program (HDRTP)

In partnership with the Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH) and Charles B. Wang Community Health Center (CBWCHC), B Free CEED co-sponsors the Health Disparities Research Training Program (HDRTP) to address the training and research gaps within Asian American health. The program provides a unique opportunity for students and health professionals to develop and implement a community-based research project, as well learn strategies to analyze, compile, and disseminate results for academic and policy communities.  B Free CEED mentors 2 HDRTP particpants to develop HBV-related projects.

Student Internships

Undergraduate, graduate, and medical students have the opportunity to learn more about API HBV-related disparities through the summer internship training and mentorship programs.  Interns develop their professional skills by working on B Free CEED projects and have the opportunity to develop mentor relationships with health professionals through the B Free CEED Learning Exchanges and the Center for the Study of Asian American Health’s Summer Seminar Series.  Past interns played an essential role in the development and implementation of many of the B Free CEED projects, including the Photovoice Project and the Community Survey.  B Free CEED accepts interns throughout the year and past interns have used their projects towards graduation requirements for their programs.  If you are interested in applying for an internship with B Free CEED, please contact us.

Geared towards Executive Directors, Program Directors and Managers, CERT offers free workshops and webinars to strengthen the capacity of community based organizations to participate in and develop community-focused research initiatives.
