Conference to focus on ‘Building a Healthier Future Together’


Hawaii County’s 2010 Healthcare Conference: “Building a Healthier Future Together,” will convene on Friday, August 13 at the Marriott Waikoloa Resort.

The day-long conference is being organized by the Office of Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi and will focus on community building and collaboration for improving our island’s health and healthcare services.

Several hundred attendees representing healthcare providers and the community at large will discuss solutions to Hawaii Island’s most pressing healthcare challenges – access to care and an acute shortage of healthcare providers.

Industry leaders will discuss the local impacts of national healthcare reform and how native Alaskans integrated culture into their healthcare delivery system to achieve better health outcomes.

Attendance at the conference is free thanks to the sponsorship of Hawaii Island’s community hospitals, health plans and Hawaii County. The public may attend. Media are welcome.
