Papa Ola Lōkahi, in partnership with ‘Ahahui o nā Kauka, Association of Native Hawaiian Physicians, has embarked on an campaign to raise awareness of issues around Hawaiian involvement in genetic and genomic research for medical purposes. We have begun by introducing a series of presentations on Hawaiian Genomics in the fall of 2020, and we are providing a reading list below. Eventually, we will be reaching out to Hawaiian communities for guidance. Meanwhile, check back here regularly to catch up on the resources so that you and yours are able to make informed recommendations.
