Premiere: World


Synopsis

Evidence shows that the environments in which people live directly affect their health and mortality.  OLA explores the widespread social factors that helped create hawai‘i’s health care crisis, and offers an intimate look at individuals who have, in the face of these challenges, brought hope to their communities. We will hear directly from experts who understand the inner workings of the medical system, and learn to define health care as a complex, interconnected, and interdependent organism requiring an entirely new approach.  OLA honors our common island heritage and demonstrates that the path to a healthy, sustainable future for Hawai‘i can be found in our oldest, most cherished values.
