Thousands of Micronesians live in Hawaii under the Compact of Free Association with the United States. They come here for job opportunities, education and medical care not available back home. Once here, however, the reality for too many is poverty, homelessness and limited access to health care. Guests will discuss the Micronesian community's most pressing issues, including racial discrimination and access to medical care and social services.
Joining moderator Dan Boylan are scheduled guests: Noda Lojkar, Honolulu Consul General, Republic of the Marshall Islands; Patricia McManaman, Director of the State Department of Human Services; Neal Palafox, MD, Professor of Family Medicine and Community Health, UH John A. Burns School of Medicine; and Innocenta Sound-Kikku, Vice Chair, Micronesian Health Community Network.
