Ka Piko JABSOM, 651 Ilalo St, Kaka‘ako, Near the mala behind research building

Each kauka ‘ōpio, young kanaka doctor, makes a kīhei that tells the story of his or her own journey to medicine. As it is with the physician’s white coat, the kīhei symbolizes great responsibility as a Kanaka physician. Kauka then step up as mentors, one-by-one presenting each student with the storied kīhei and imparting words of wisdom on the importance of kuleana (responsibility), pono (doing right) and lōkahi (teamwork).

Reception to follow.
