History took place at the UH Cancer Center last week! The inaugural SOCRA Hawai‘i Chapter meeting took place on Thursday, March 31st in the Sullivan Center. A very positive response was felt as 46 attendees were present that day. The attendees represented a variety of health organizations, including: UH Cancer Center, The Queen’s Medical Center, John A. Burns School of Medicine, Kaiser Permanente, Tripler Army Medical Center and the East-West Medical Research Institute.


The meeting was opened up by the current Chapter Chair, Munirih Taafaki, Regulatory Supervisor for UHCC Clinical Trials Office. Mendy Dunn, Manager of UHCC Clinical Trials Office, presented on the ever-evolving role of the clinical research professional, providing history and background connecting the past to the present.


For interested parties, there are two options for SOCRA identification and involvment: membership and certification. SOCRA membership is open to clinical research professionals who work in a variety of clinical fields. To receive a SOCRA certification (CCRP,) there is eligibility criteria that needs to be met. At the conclusion of the meeting, 13 attendees showed interest in obtaining their CCRP certification. One of the immediate goals is to gain enough interest so that the certification exam can be hosted in Hawaii as opposed to flying to the mainland, as is currently the case. Anyone who is a SOCRA member is welcome to join the Hawaii Chapter Education Committee to help plan future SOCRA Hawaii Chapter meetings, and arrange and facilitate for the local examination. The next chapter meeting is set to be scheduled for later this summer. Further interest or questions regarding SOCRA can be directed to Munirih Taafaki at mtaafaki@cc.hawaii.edu or you may visit the SOCRA website: www.socra.org
