Stop by the Kaua‘i District Health Office this Friday

The Kaua’i District Health Office (KDHO) is hosting an open house on Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in celebration of National Public Health Week. Located on Umi Street near the elections building and Central Pacific Bank building, the open house provides an opportunity for the public to engage with Hawai’i State Department of Health staff.

This event serves as a way to show gratitude to the community for their ongoing support in creating a healthier and thriving Kaua’i. Attendees at the open house will have the opportunity to learn about public health career paths and educational opportunities. Invitees include high schools, senior citizen clubs, Mayor Derek S.K. Kawakami, the Kaua’i County Council, the governor’s liaison, and Kaua’i’s legislative team. Various Department of Health professionals, such as vector control experts, community health workers, public health nurses, and mental health professionals, will be available to provide information.

National Public Health Week is observed during the first week of April across the U.S., encouraging communities to recognize the importance of public health. This year’s theme “Protecting, Connecting and Thriving: We Are All Public Health” highlights that improving national health requires collective effort from everyone – government agencies, community groups and individuals alike
