KRHA explores roots of violence

The Kauai Rural Health Association is set to roll into its 22nd year with its annual meeting focused on exploring the roots of violence and collaborating to effect a violence-free Kauai.

Besides the regular business agenda, the event will feature a presentation by epidemiologist and monitoring and evaluation consultant Virginia Loo, Ph.D. and interactive exercises aiming to illustrate the differences between primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention in the context of a violence-free Kauai.

The meeting will be held at the Kauai Beach Resort Orchid Room from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 3. The cost to attend is $25, which includes refreshments, workshop materials, and a one-year membership in the association. Space is limited. Contact Sheryl Keliipio for registration and information, 241-3428.

On Kauai, there are agencies and organizations working to end violence through awareness, intervention, and prevention strategies. This workshop will provide education and tools that can be applied in individual practices, and promote a greater collaborative approach for a violence-free Kauai.
