I Ola Lāhui is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of a grant from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs for $500,000 to support Kūlana Hawai‘i, a weight management program designed with the health of Hawai’i in mind. Kūlana Hawai‘i is being funded by The Office of Hawaiian Affairs in partnership with HMSA to provide an effective approach to weight management for Hawai‘i that is responsive to the values and lifestyle of Native Hawaiians. The program includes individual goal setting and motivational counseling, consultations with a nutritionist to tailor a plan to individual needs, classes about the science of eating and weight control, staying motivated, healthy eating strategies, physical activity, stress management and health maintenance as well as opportunities for physical activity with a trainer within the facility. There is no cost for HMSA members and scholarships from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs are available for Native Hawaiians. At a time when a healthy way of life is needed more than ever, OHA in partnership with HMSA has demonstrated its commitment to supporting a non-profit organization that brings these services to those that are most in need.
If you would like more information about the program, or to enroll, please contact Geri Kaleponi, Program Manager, at (808)525- 6255 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
