In 1975, five Hawaiians graduated in the University of Hawai‘i’s John A. Burns School of Medicine’s first graduating class. They joined seven other Hawaiian physicians known to be in practice. Today, we are aware of more than 300 Native Hawaiian physicians worldwide. Although our numbers are growing, there is still a lot of work to do to reverse the alarming health trends of the indigenous people in Hawai‘i.
‘Ahahui o nā Kauka believes that physician leadership has a unique role in the shared mission to raise the health status of our people. ‘Ahahui o nā Kauka provides physicians a forum for fellowship and involvement in initiatives and projects that serve to improve the health of Native Hawaiians.
Hui pū, join us, in finding that space where Hawaiian physicians can champion superior health care for Native Hawaiians through leadership and advocacy, education, community service and collaboration, and the support of one another.
