1st Ann. Graduate Student Symposium: Integrated Communities

Location: New Gym

The 1st Annual Graduate Student Symposium is scheduled for Friday, March 18th, from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm, in the UH Hilo gym. Registration starts at 8:30 am.


The theme of the symposium is: Integrated Community Design: Health, Environment, and Culture. Our goal is to inspire inquiry and collaboration among all members of our community as a pathway to optimal health and quality of life. This symposium will focus on the connection between the three elements and their roles in developing solutions in three significant areas: vulnerable populations, Hawaii's youth, and community-based research.


The keynote speaker will be Mr. Matthew Nagato​, the Communications Director for the Hawai'i Primary Care Association, a non-profit public health organization dedicated to improving the health of our communities. Mr. Nagato was the director/writer/producer of the 2013 Hawaiʻi International Film Festival short documentary ʻOla: Health is Everything, and a second documentary ʻIke: Knowledge is Everywhere.

Three panel discussions will be presented in the morning, with breakout sessions to follow in the afternoon. Panelists will consist of UH Hilo graduate students and faculty, and community members with experience in these areas. Graduate students, undergraduate students, faculty, community partners and community members are invited to attend. A more detailed agenda will be available as we get closer to the symposium.

Please plan to come and share in the discussions about how we can collaborate with our Hawaiʻi island community to find solutions to issues that concern all of us.

This Town/Gown symposium is sponsored by the Division of Academic Affairs, with support from the Chancellor's Diversity Grant.
