The vision of East Hawaiʻi’s non-profit Community First is one where we as a community not only take personal responsibility for our own health but help each other care for our mutual wellbeing. We want to recognize former Hawaiʻi County Prosecutor and Community First Board member Charlene Iboshi. Charlene’s hands-on leadership has helped tip the idea of healthcare from treating disease to caring for health through grassroots, community initiatives. Charlene is currently the co-chair for our Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD) Committee.
We continue to publish a monthly column regarding health, healthcare, social determinants, and our activities in the Hawaiʻi Tribune Herald. Daily circulation is at 17,000 subscribers and 3,500 online. Please click on titles to access the full article.
