Weight Management Program: Kulana Hawaii, FREE for Native Hawaiians

Sara Perry byline80 Kulana Hawaii is a weight management program offered to Native Hawaiians for FREE.  Those that do not have Native Hawaiian ancestry may also participate but may have to pay the “Co-pay” that you would pay if you were seeing your primary care-physician.

Here’s a brief write up about the program:
