Grant to support Native Hawaiians in medicine

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) The U.S. Department of Education is awarding the University of Hawaii at Hilo a half-million dollar grant to help Native Hawaiians pursue careers in the health and medicine.

The funds will support programs offering mentoring and enrichment to children from kindergarten through grade 12. The money will also pay for tutorials, field trips, internships and research for college students.

Na Pua Noeau Executive Director Dr. David Sing says the school is joining others like the UH School of Medicine to address health issues of Native Hawaiians.

Sing said in a statement Wednesday the aim is for Native Hawaiian health care professionals to shape the future of Native Hawaiian health.
