'Imi Hale, the Native Hawaiian Cancer Research and Training Network

The specific goals of 'Imi Hale, the Native Hawaiian Cancer Awareness, Research and Training Network, were to reduce cancer incidence and mortality among Native Hawaiians residing in the state of Hawaii through the establishment of a sustainable infrastructure to promote cancer awareness within Native Hawaiian communities and initiate cancer research, training, and control activities. The project worked collaboratively with key partners at the community, state, and national levels to provide the support systems and expertise needed to address cancer disparities in Hawaii.
