April 11, 2014

On behalf of the people of the County of Hawai‘i, I am honored to extend a warm welcome to the members and participants of the Ka‘u Rural Health Community Association’s 17th Annual Conference at the Pahala Community Center.

Established in 1997 as the first community rural health association in the nation, the Ka‘u Rural Health Community Association has been the lead in meeting the health care needs of the Ka‘u community. The recent establishment of the first LPN class and the Individualized Career Achievement Network program will be instrumental in providing career readiness and employment training for many in this rural community.

Mahalo to the Ka‘u Rural Health Community Association for organizing and sponsoring this conference that highlights the partnering programs and recognizes the many organizations and people who make it happen. We look forward to working together in the future to continue to bring a better quality of life to the people of Ka‘u.
