Voyagers Exhibit Opens Friday

Opening Ceremony Friday for Native Voices Exhibit from US National Library of Medicine

An opening ceremony is scheduled this Friday, November 14th at 11:00 a.m. in the Health Sciences Library for the Native Voices traveling exhibit. The exhibit, on loan from the U.S. National Library of Medicine, features interviews with several of Hawai’i’s distinguished citizens, including faculty of the John A. Burns School of Medicine. JABSOM will host the exhibit until January.


The ceremony will include a traditional Hawaiian opening chant, remarks from JABSOM Dean Jerris Hedges, Dr. Marjorie Mau, Director of the Center for Native & Pacific Health Disparities Research, and Health Sciences Librarian Virginia Tanji, followed by a closing chant.


Below, see a JABSOM video last year where Tanji and Mau describe the exhibit.

Be a "Mo Bros", a "Mo Sista" and Help Support our MOVEMBER Movement

Several JABSOM students are participating in the Movember campaign and we would love to have your support!


Movember raises funds and awareness to support research, education, and outreach in prostate and testicular cancer. This year mental health is added. Participating men in the "Mo Bros" campaign grow out their mustaches during November to rally donations for the campaign.


Please consider donating to this important cause. (To make a donation click here. Please donate to the "JABSOM Team")


You can join the Movember JABSOM Team, too! (click here) "Mo Bros" and women "Mo Sistas" are wanted!


If you see a Mo Bros on campus, please take time to talk with them about this important cause. (Their mustaches are likely in their most awkward phase of growth and could use some encouragement and support.)


Thank you for your time and generosity,

Ari AuWinitzky
