Stop by the Kaua‘i District Health Office this Friday

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. The event, located on Umi Street near the elections building and Central Pacific Bank building, offers community members an opportunity to engage with Hawai’i State Department of Health staff and learn about programs and actions they can take to address public health challenges.

Dr. Janet Berreman, Kaua’i District Health Officer, expressed excitement for the event, stating that National Public Health Week encourages exploration of the various programs and services offered by the Department of Health. The goal is to enhance the well-being of the community through collaboration with community members and partners. 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 chance to learn about public health career paths and educational opportunities. 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 are among those invited to attend. 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 on various topics related to public health.

National Public Health Week is observed during the first week of April across communities in the U.S., emphasizing the importance of public health issues affecting everyone in society.

This year’s theme is “Protecting, Connecting and Thriving: We Are All Public Health.” It highlights how communities must work together towards improving their overall well-being by implementing initiatives that promote healthy lifestyles while addressing social determinants of health.

The open house presents an excellent opportunity for people in Kauai to meet with state representatives from Hawai’i State Department of Health (DOH) and learn more about ways they can contribute towards improving their health outcomes while promoting positive changes in their communities.

In summary, KDHO invites everyone who wants to learn more about public health issues or become part of a career path that focuses on improving people’s lives through healthcare services or advocacy efforts to attend its open house on Friday from 9 am – 1 pm at Umi Street near Central Pacific Bank building or elections office location during National Public Health Week celebrations this year.
