Elective Rotation: Pacific Island Health Disparities
Contact: Tania Rezai
Location: Oahu, Hawaii
Spend 2.5 weeks on Oahu learning more about the structural violence faced by COFA populations as well as Native Hawaiians and the ways in which the political and health systems have failed these populations. Explored different community health centers and identified areas of need on the island including exposure to ACEs interventions and Adolescent Health. Met with the family medicine residency department to identify ways in which they are training residents to address these matters.
