Pacific Region Indigenous Doctors Congress 2018
JULY 12 - 17, 2018 UH Hilo, Island of Hawai‘i
‘Oi Ola Wai Honua
Life is Better...while the Earth has Water
The ‘Ahahui o nā Kauka, the Association of Native Hawaiian Physicians, welcomes you to the Ninth biannual Pacific Region Indigenous Doctors Congress (PRIDoC) being held July 12-17th, 2018 in Hilo on the Island of Hawai‘i.
PRIDoC is an indigenous space for indigenous physicians and students, researchers and health professionals from across the Pacific to gather around shared issues of well-being among the many indigenous communities throughout and around the Pacific.
The theme, ‘Oi Ola Wai Honua, was given to us by Aunty Pua Kanahele. This translates as “life is better while the earth has water” and reminds us of the importance of caring for our resources, as well as those of us who also function as resources to our people. We hope that this theme will inspire the exchange of ideas and collective knowledge that will enable our communities and us to thrive physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially and culturally.
PRIDoC 2018 is a collaborative effort, involving many partners including the University of Hawai‘i John A. Burns School of Medicine, Department of Native Hawaiian Health, the University of Hawai‘i Hilo and many other community partners and supporters.
We are excited to announce that PRIDoC 2018 is able to provide CME (Continuing medical education) credits for physicians.
The Hawaii Consortium for Continuing Medical Education (HCCME) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Hawaii Consortium for Continuing Medical Education designates this live activity for a maximum of 25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation.
