Public Health Training Hui Highlights and What to Look Forward to in Fall 2023

“Being an ally doesn’t mean when you are standing next to me. You are going to have something to say to stick up for me. An ally to me is someone who will stick up for me and the community when I am not in the room.” To honor our LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month, the Public Health Training Hui hosted an informative training on LGB&T Cultural Humility on May 19, presented by our partners Kunane Dreier and Maddalynn Sesepasara of Hawai’i Health and Harm Reduction Center. Over 150 participants nationwide joined the training to learn the historical context of our mahū community and communication tools to improve quality of care to patients. You can visit the Hawai’i Public Health Training Hui’s Youtube channel to watch this training and previously recorded sessions.

As we embark into Fall, the Hui will continue to host free webinars that offer continuing education credit hours. Upcoming topics include elder abuse awareness, trauma-informed care for healthcare professionals, climate change, maternal and child health, mental health, and domestic violence. Continuing education credits are provided free of cost to professionals in the following areas: social work, substance abuse, prevention specialist, registered dietetics, and legal and community health education.
