We are interested in attending the health fair. We have a portable body composition machine that can report percent body fat, visceral adipose area, and other health measurements. We would like to provide screening to the community. We would need an outlet to power the machine.
Someone will get back to you.
Have you be contacted?
My name is Kiana Otsuka, and I work for the Oʻahu Metropolitan Planning Organization (OahuMPO). We help to plan and fund island-wide transportation, in coordination with state and local government agencies.
We’re currently updating our Oʻahu Regional Transportation Plan (ORTP) 2045, which demonstrates future transportation goals, planning, and projects through 2045. We’re in our first phase of public outreach, in which we’re asking the public to tell us their transportation goals and priorities for the future. This exercise helps us to guide what kind of projects are funded through 2045. This is really important because our lives are impacted by transportation every day, with a particular impact on health (walking, biking, quality of life, etc.). For more information about the ORTP, please visit the ORTP webpage: https://www.oahumpo.org/plans-and-programs/oahu-regional-transportation-plan-ortp/
We’ve been partnering with community organizations and schools, such as Pūʻōhala Elementary School at their ʻImi Pono concert and craft fair, as well as ʻEwa Makai Middle School at their Tiger Fest, to do outreach and ask for public input. We came across the Papakōlea Annual ʻOhana Health Fair and thought it might be an excellent opportunity to engage your attendees and Native Hawaiians about what they’d like to see in the future. What we’ve been doing at events is putting up two posters: one poster is informational, and the other we have transportation goals on. We’re asking the public to identify their top three goals/priorities through putting their 3 stickers next to their top goals.
We’re really keen on reaching people outside of Honolulu, who don’t normally participate in the planning process, and/or who are typically under-served by the planning process, so we’re very grateful for your help. We really appreciate your consideration for having us at your event. Please let us know if you need further clarification, or if you have any questions. Thanks very much. We’ve written to the email listed on the website, but have not yet received a response.
