A Culture of Health

Imagine a Hawaii where healthy choices are equitable and accessible. Where the healthy choice is the easy choice. We are fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans, by making the places we live, learn, work, play, pray and heal healthier.

Take two minutes to learn Hands-Only CPR(link opens in new window)(link opens in new window) now. 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. When a person has a cardiac arrest, immediate CPR can double or triple their chance of survival. Prepare to save a life, find a CPR course near you today.
