Launch Ceremony: World's First Native Hawaiian and Indigenous Health Degree

March 6, 2013 - March 5, 2013
Manoa Campus, Hawai`inuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge, Kamakakūokalani Building (2645 Dole Street)

Did you know that Native Hawaiians live 13 years less than many of the rest of Hawai`i’s citizens? The College of Health Sciences and Social Welfare at the University of Hawai`i Mānoa is working to change that staggering statistic on several fronts.


The newest program is a one-of-a-kind area of study being launched in the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) Office of Public Health Studies, based at the UH Mānoa campus.


The new Native Hawaiian and Indigenous Health Specialization within the Master of Public Health Program will focus on understanding why such substantial health disparities exist among Hawai`i’s Native people and advancing the work that needs to be done to change them.


Dr. Maile Taualii, Specialization Head of the program, explains that, “The purpose of this program is to prepare students for leadership roles in Indigenous health, policy, research and culturally safe practices and services. The program's global focus makes it unique and the only one of its kind.”
