BECOME A COVID -19 EDUCATOR-PUBLIC HEALTH PARTNER

Inspired by the leadership of Queen Lili`uokalani and her shift to Ho`omalu to care for her people during the small pox epidemic, we originally started as a community grassroots project called the Kūpa`a Collective.  Then, through support from NIH (National Institute of Health) we became a formalized project:  the Pacific Alliance Against COVID-19 (PAAC).  We are a transdisciplinary team from the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa Education, JABSOM (John A. Burns Schools of Medicine)  Social Sciences department, in joing partnership with Hawai`i Community Health Centers...  We invite you to join us on this collective action journey to make a difference.

Kaleolani Hanohano

Aloha mai kākou e nā makamaka: `o au iho nō `o Kaleolani Hanohoano `o `Ihi`ihi ko`u mauna, `o Kahawai nui ko`u wai `o Pu`ehu`ehu ko`u kai, nani o Ko`olauloa i ka la`i! Well wishes to you from my `āina in Ko`olauloa.

I am Kaleo Hanohano, a proud product of the public school system and cross-trained professional with over 30 years of valuable experience in the Hawai`i Department of Education.  I humbly serve my kaiā`ulu by honoring the work of kūpuna who have come before me. My early teaching started as a tutor in the Hawaiian Immersion program at Waiau Elementary, and at the Honolulu Board of Water Supply as a Community Educator.  My professional career created invitations to teach  `Ōlelo Hawai`i and Modern History of Hawai`i at  Roosevelt, the University Laboratory School,  Kaimukī High School, and Kahuku High and Intermediate. I am also a certified trainer with ten years of experience as a Peer Education Specialist, covering teen health, wellness and fitness. This curriculum creates a safe place for social emotional wellness, and intergenerational conversations, that addresses the mauli ola of the `ohana, and allows for community collaboration in education.  The Mele Mo`oku`auhau promotes a sense of belonging, where children attain the knowledge they need from their parents and elders to live and thrive in their Kaiā`ulu.
