Well, this looks like fun. The folks at Asian Week are looking for "enthusiastic and passionate" Asian American models for the 2012 Hepatitis B Awareness calendar. Used to encourage the public to "be a hero and see a doctor who tests for hepatitis b," prospective models will need to do the following: 1) send in 3-5 photos (include a head shot and full body shot), 2) Write a brief statement about how you are a "Hep B Hero" or would encourage others to be "Hep B heroes," and 3) mention your age, ethnicity, and whether you are a Hep B carrier or know someone who has Hep B.

Why is this important? Well, according to a press release, "liver cancer is the deadliest cancer in America, and one of the leading causes of deaths for Asian/Pacific Islander Americans."

Submissions are due no later than August 5. Entries can be sent to Angela Pang at apang[at]asianweek[dot]com. Make sure to write CALENDAR in the subject line. For details, please call 415-373-4002.
