comments from attendees

I really enjoyed the talks on CART and was excited to meet Dr Lim. I am hopeful we can bring this to HPH in the future. I also got lots of tips regarding taking oral chemotherapy and encouraging compliance with oral meds

there is a lot of new therapies in cancer care especially immunotherapy. I learned a great deal with the new immunotherapies. It is very important to educate patient and families on their treatments especially side effecting and reporting to the nurse and physicians. Treatments are rapidly evolving, and healthcare team need to be aware of the new medications what is administered to patients

The navigation program informed me about the needs of patients in rural areas so I can certainly speak with confidence about issues that the whole team should consider when planning treatment and discharging a patient to another island.

The Chapter would like to thank 3 very dedicated members who have given much of their time and effort to make our chapter a success who have recently decided to step down from their duties. 

Anna Zimmerman has been Webmaster since 2015 through 3 different versions of the website.  Before the Webmaster, Anna was editor of the hard copy Newsletter from 2008-2015. She was also the Board's membership committee chairperson from 2015-2018.  As a member of the Board of Directors, Anna was an important part of the leadership of the Chapter in strategic planning and vision.   In her many roles throughout many years, Anna worked very hard for the benefit of oncology nursing in Hawaii.   

Sharon Shigemasu has been a member of the Chapter's Annual Conference committee for 25 years. During that time, she has served as the chairperson, the hotel liaison, the vendor liaison and coordinated the selection and purchase of the very popular bag given to every attendee.

Christa Braun-Inglis has been a member of the Chapter's Annual Conference committee for 8 years. During that time, she has served as the chairperson and the hotel liaison.

We wish Anna, Sharon and Christa well and hope to see them at future Chapter activities
