Hui Mālama Ola Nā ‘Ōiwi held its East Hawai‘i Health Education Reunion on October 17, 2015 at Aunty Sally’s Lu‘au Hale. Over 250 Hui Mālama Ola Nā ‘Ōiwi guests and participants enjoyed the day connecting with others who share a common desire to live longer and feel better. Health information and screenings were conducted to re-energize everyone’s commitment to manage, improve, and take better care of their health. These include blood pressure checks, height, weight, body mass index, and HbA1c screens.
Special mahalo goes out to Eileen Lovell and the UH-Hilo Nursing students; Michelle Kim, Patricia Jusczak, George Karvas and the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy students; Sharon Maron, Erick Cremer, and the HCC Nursing students for providing clinical screenings. A warm mahalo also goes out to Dr. Sandor Hernandez of Eyeland Eye Docs, special guest and keynote speaker for this event. Good food, fun, and fellowship made the day special.
