‘Imi Hale – Research, Education and Training Program has provided support to Hawaiian-serving agencies in three areas:
- Research – supporting emerging Native Hawaiian investigators in health disparities research incorporating community based participatory research principles;
- Education – supporting health awareness and education through the development of culturally tailored health education materials incorporating health communications theory; and
- Training – supporting training of community outreach workers, patient navigators and other health care providers on community-identified training needs.
The ‘Imi Hale program was built upon 16 years of experience as the Native Hawaiian Cancer Network, collaborating with key local, state, national and international partners to address cancer and other health disparities prevalent in Hawaiian communities.
