Limited Capacity seats available

State-wide research was conducted to learn about contemporary Native Hawaiian parents’ perspectives and experiences caring for their children with asthma. Data collection through focus groups brought together rich personal stories that reaffirmed the importance of being sensitive to the worldview, culture, and cultural values of indigenous people when providing health care. Pertinent recommendations offered by parents included a website with easy to understand information about asthma, glossary of medical terms in lay language, natural remedies, and having a “talk story” format to share information among parents. Come and learn how Kealoha Publishing promotes health literacy among Native Hawaiian parents.
