To Your Health!

This year's Heritage Society Symposium focused on our health. UH Foundation Heritage Society members, and other University of Hawaiʻi donors and friends learned more about medical innovation, research and education at UH and how it impacts each of us during this year's Heritage Society Symposium at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM).

Expert panels and interactive demonstrations addressed topics including "Advancing Cancer Care through Research", "Healthy Aging" and "Health Information for You." The Symposium also showcased JABSOM's innovative learning methods including standardized patients, manikin simulations, and a tutorial-based, student-centered system called Problem-Based Learning (PBL).

We enjoyed hearing from participants who appreciated the opportunity to interact with and learn from UH Health professionals.
