Medical School Hotline: Turning the tragedy of tobacco around: how revenue from cigarettes improves health in Hawai'i.
Hawaii Med J 70(11):245-7.
Abstract : JABSOM takes its responsibility to improve health among Hawai'i's people to heart. The school's vision is, ALOHA: to Attain Lasting Optimal Health for All, a theme adopted through a strategic planning process which engaged JABSOM's partners in the health and life sciences including its private sector collaborators and its sister colleges throughout the University of Hawai'i's ten-campus system. JABSOM's ability to collaborate and contribute in these areas has been irrevocably enhanced by tobacco-related funding that the State of Hawai'i has committed to develop the Kaka'ako campus. The taxpayers' generosity has improved the education and reach of clinicians and researchers who, in turn, dedicate their lives to preventing, treating and eliminating the deadly grip tobacco holds on too many of the people of Hawai'i.
