Elective Rotation: Waimanalo Community Health Center, Hawaii
Location: Waimanalo, Oahu, Hawaii
I spend 2 weeks working at the Waimanalo Community Health Center in Waimanalo, Oahu, HI. This is a lovely patient-centered medical home, which takes care of primarily native Hawaiian and South Pacific populations. I spent time in clinic with very motivated FM physicians who loved teaching, went to community education classes on diabetes and healthy living within the context of native Hawaiian traditions, and spent time with the community outreach social workers and psychologists. The patients and clinic staff were all very welcoming. I highly recommend this experience!
