This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.
UH Hilo has teamed up with the University of Central Florida and the University of Houston on a $2.7 million DoD-funded research project to determine the effects of deployment on families. The goal of the Ohana Heroes Project is to help understand how separations affect children and their families in order to develop effective support programs.
The project is especially interested in meeting with non-military families with children ages 7 to 17 who are going through a recent separation or divorce as well as with military families with a currently deployed service member in any branch. Families are compensated $100 for participating in interviews, surveys, and non-invasive physical measures of stress over a one week period.
