HMSA Foundation Funds Colon Cancer Screening for Native Hawaiian Men, and Healthy Aging Education

HMSA Foundation Funds Colon Cancer Screening for Native Hawaiian Men, and Healthy Aging Education

The HMSA Foundation has awarded $93,300 to support two innovative new UH initiatives that will help improve the quality of life for Hawai‘i’s aging residents, and the health of Native Hawaiian men.

“Keeping Hawai‘i residents in the best health possible is a team effort that requires the combined efforts of individuals, their friends and family members, health care providers, and our community. Part of each person’s responsibility is to proactively do things for themselves and those around them,” said Mark Forman, executive administrator of the HMSA Foundation. “The Colon Cancer Screening program helps Native Hawaiian Men learn how to screen themselves through self-testing. The Healthy Aging Online Videos will give family caregivers much needed information so they can support the efforts of their health care providers. Both of these programs focus on the unique needs of Hawai‘i’s population and will help us work together to achieve a healthier Hawai‘i.”
