Our staff would like to acknowledge the AmeriCorps VISTAs and interns for their hard work and contributions to HIPHI and Hawai’i’s public health sector. HIPHI received 53 internship applications between January and June 2023 and mentored 11 interns/volunteers this spring and six interns this summer. We also welcomed four AmeriCorps VISTA members who are serving at HIPHI, Aloha Harvest, and Project Vision Hawai‘i. In addition, we have two candidates completing the application process and hope to start in July with Hawai‘i Children’s Action Network and Hawai‘i State Department of Health – Kaua‘i District Health Office.
