Welcome the Healthy Hawaiian Homepage
Welcome the Healthy Hawaiian homepage, the Hawaiian Activists Project is part of a series of studies on Healthy Hawaiian elders. This project multiyear, multi-generational, and interdisciplinary research project aims to understand the health of Hawaiian elders (60+). Our research team is built on over 5 years of collaborative work between Dr. Ngoc Phan (Political Science, PhD) and Dr. Lynette Cruz (kupuna and Cultural Anthropology, PhD). We aim to understand how Hawaiian elders serve as role models of health and resilience. We strive to uphold the values of Indigenous Data Soverignty and build up future generations of Hawaiian scholars and activists. This project is funded by the Center for Pacific Innovations, Knowledge, and Opportunities (PIKO) Pilot award program (funded NIH) helded at the John Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa.
