Jaime Wong and Charisse Yuen are former interns who returned to HIPHI as volunteers to help with an ongoing community assessment project. Both former interns volunteered their time and talents during their summer holidays to collect survey responses, which will help HIPHI’s partners to plan for tobacco prevention and control efforts across the state.

Jaime, who recently graduated with a masters degree in nursing, had been a policy intern in 2014. Charisse had been an intern under the mentorship of Programs Director, Roella Foronda, in 2018. She will be completing her master’s degree in public health this fall. HIPHI staff greatly appreciate their kokua (help) and their hard work. Mahalo nui!

Volunteers gift their time and talent and also have an opportunity to learn more about public health or practice public health skills. Whether a person wants some basic experience in the public health field or to help HIPHI during special events and projects, HIPHI seeks volunteers throughout the year.
