Community-Based Research, Health Education, Interviewing Elders

NUR290 2011 NUR 290 2011 NUR 290 2011

Students engaged youth and families in educational games to promote health at Children and Youth Day at the Hawaii State Capitol.

Over the past few years, our NUR290 students have conducted community-based participatory research (CBPR) at a wide variety of sites across the island, working with partners such as our legislators at the Hawaii State Capitol, Palolo Homes, and the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs. Students surveyed the community to determine the health and health care needs of Oahu residents. While the adult respondents were kept busy with the survey, we engaged keiki in educational games. Through "Food Twister" and other activities, they learned about nutrition and healthy food choices.

Honoring our Kupuna and their Legacies

As an ongoing project for NUR290, students conduct interviews or "talk-story" sessions with elders at our partner facilities. These precious oral histories are then "gifted" to the elders and their families. In some cases, formal presentations have been delivered to staff at our partner organizations, reporting on the highlights of our findings and interview aggregates.
