Join Us at the Open House at Kaua‘i District Health Office: Everyone Welcome

In honor of National Public Health Week, the Kaua‘i District Health Office is hosting an open house on April 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at their district office located at 3040 Umi St. in Līhuʻe. This free event is an opportunity for the public to interact with Hawai‘i State Department of Health staff and learn about various programs and actions they can take to address public health challenges.

Dr. Janet Berreman, Kaua‘i District Health Officer, emphasized the importance of National Public Health Week and the programs and services offered by DOH to improve community well-being. She expressed excitement for the event and the chance to thank the community and partners for their ongoing support in building a healthier and thriving Kaua‘i. Collaboration between different stakeholders is crucial in increasing understanding and support for public health initiatives that benefit everyone in the community.

The theme of this year’s National Public Health Week, Protecting, Connecting, and Thriving: We Are All Public Health, highlights the importance of working together to improve the nation’s health. At the open house event, attendees will have the chance to meet with a diverse group of DOH staff members, including vector control, administrative services, community health workers, public health nurses, epidemiologists, mental health professionals, food safety inspectors, disabilities case managers, and microbiologists. They will showcase how these different roles contribute to public health efforts in the community.

National Public Health Week is observed during the first full week of April each year when communities nationwide come together to recognize the significance of public health and address critical health issues. The open house event is a great opportunity for everyone in Kaua‘i to learn more about public health initiatives that can help them live a healthy lifestyle while promoting a thriving community for all.
