A new statewide, on-line Hawaii Health Events Calendar has been launched in an effort to promote personal, community and environmental health-related issues.

Hawaii residents, visitors and organizations are invited to view the new Hawaii Health Events community health calendar on-line at:

“This is a great way to announce, promote and increase attendance of your upcoming events,” said Katherine Fisher, co-founder of “Visitors and residents with computer access have the opportunity to plan ahead and learn about upcoming health events, workshops and classes, sports competitions, community meetings and cultural events in a timely fashion.”

The goal of the Hawaii Health Guide Events Calendar is to support Hawaii’s Health and Wellness communities, by providing a comprehensive and efficient way for Hawaii’s residents and visitors to find these opportunities in a timely manner.

Kaua‘i-based graphic and web communication firm, Wasabi Design Inc., delivered planning, design, and html for the Hawaii Health Events Calendar, as well as for the forthcoming and websites.

The Hawaii Tourisism Authority, through the Kaua‘i and O‘ahu offices of Economic Development, helped fund the website using matching grants from three Hawaii-based companies:, Wasabi Design Inc and Guide.Net, Inc.

Visitors to the website can search for events from a variety of healthy categories such as Arts and Theatre, Classes and Lectures, Community Meetings, Cultural and Ethnic, Dance and Movement, Entertainment and Music, Environment, Family, Food, Health and Wellness, Spiritual, Sports and Fitness, and Unique and Special Events.

The new event calendar is searchable by key word, date, category and island.

The calendar includes a recurring-event feature that supports repeating events such as monthly community meetings, weekly yoga classes, or annual sports competitions and cultural events.

“It is easy to submit your events on-line, and individuals and organizations submitting multiple events may register to edit and manage their own events,” said Michael Saiz, co-founder of “Events may also be included in the Monthly Featured Events section of the calendar home page.”

Frequent contributors can request user status that includes passwords and or permissions to directly access and make changes to their events.

The Hawaii Health Events Calendar is found on-line through the home page, or at
