Over the years, the educational vision of KNNPH has broadened to offer trainings and activities that focus not only on the education of the community, but also on the importance of good health. Selected examples of these programs include wellness clinics, education and social programs for youth, nutrition, exercise, traditional Hawaiian healing classes, literacy fairs, and family strengthening workshops.
