BECOME A COVID -19 EDUCATOR-PUBLIC HEALTH PARTNER

In early February 2020 when COVID-19 was in China and Italy, Kaleolani Hanohano, then at Kaimuki HS was already preparing lessons on the potential for devastating human and economic impacts in Hawaiʻi.  We discussed her lesson, I shared an excerpt from Queen Liliʻuokalaniʻs autobiography about her 1881 smallpox quarantine of Oʻahu.  The education project grew out of a conviction that educators were the missing link in reliable, timely public health COVID-19 education.  
The four modules provide a Hawaiʻi-Pacific Island history on infectious diseases, strategies to assess risks at home for COVID-19, strategies to protect and prevent, and up-to-date information on testing and vaccination.  Support from Waiʻanae Coast Comprehensive Health Center and other health centers is available to address COVID-19 questions and concerns.  In Module II an adult family member is invited to register at the project website to take a survey.     
We invite you to become a certified COVID-19 educator for grades 6-12 students and community members.  Register below, get certified on Modules I-IV as a COVID-19 Educator and stay updated as an educator partner.  Modules can be team-taught taught if you register as a team.  Twice monthly Zoom sessions will be scheduled to discuss the curriculum and to provide updates on COVID-19.  The curriculum project is supported by an NIH award for Pacific Alliance Against COVID-19 and an NSF award for teacher leadership.  

The modules provide students and families with Hawaiian historical perspectives on infectious diseases, strategies to assess their risk for COVID-19, strategies to reduce their risk, and current testing and vaccination information.A mahalo of $200 is provided to teachers after getting certified and teaching all four modules.
