“Adopting a healthy lifestyle has changed my life completely!” was the theme for Christine Hernandez, longtime caregiver at our Hale Wai Vista preschool, and Cheri Richards, Ka Paʻalana Site Supervisor as they inspired our families with their stories at our 5th annual Ka Pa‘alana Health Fair. We had over twenty health care providers sharing about the importance of healthy living and empowering our families to take small but impactful steps to ensure a healthier life for parents and keiki. This event provided our families with free vision screening, CPR training, blood pressure testing, and so much more! Everyone that attended went home with a book, hula hoop, and a bag of fresh produce, while a select few received an additional raffle prize of hygiene products. Mahalo to the many health care providers that share our passion for strengthening families here in Hawai‘i.
