Our health plan QUEST Integration members have the opportunity to access free traditional practices geared toward health improvement and cultural humility through our new partnership with the Waimanalo Health Center. Understanding the deep connection our native Hawaiian members have to their indigenous practices, culture and values is critical to, whole health wellness. This supports the emotional, spiritual and cultural needs of our community. This is our first endeavor in this initiative and offerings will include lomilomi, hula and la`au lapa`au. The program has been embraced by the health center and our members, and we are looking forward to continuing to nourish the multi-faceted needs of our communities as we explore expanding our pilot across the State.
