In celebration of National Public Health Week, the Kaua‘i District Health Office is hosting an open house on April 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at their district office located at 3040 Umi St. in Līhuʻe. This free event provides the public with an opportunity to engage with Hawai‘i State Department of Health staff about various programs and actions that community members can take to address public health challenges.

During the open house, attendees will also learn about public health career and educational opportunities, as well as the many programs and services that DOH offers to enhance the well-being of the community. Kaua‘i District Health Officer Dr. Janet Berreman is looking forward to welcoming everyone at the event and expressing gratitude to the community and partners for their continued support in building a thriving and healthier Kaua‘i.

National Public Health Week is an annual event that invites communities across the U.S. to recognize the importance of public health and highlight critical issues in improving the nation’s health. This year’s theme is Protecting, Connecting, and Thriving: We Are All Public Health, which emphasizes how everyone plays a role in protecting and promoting public health for themselves and others. DOH staff will be present at the open house event, including vector control, administrative services, community health workers, public health nurses, epidemiologists, mental health professionals, food safety inspectors, disabilities case managers, and microbiologists who will be available to answer questions about their specific areas of expertise.

The Kaua‘i District Health Office encourages everyone to attend this important event as it provides an opportunity for individuals in our community to learn more about how they can contribute towards creating a safer and more healthy environment for themselves and future generations.
