Purpose: The Waimanalo Health Center proposes to provide diabetes and related risk factor health screening as well as relevant health educational and behavioral intervention services to the geographically isolated, mostly-Samoan community of Hauula (pop. 3,651) on Oahu. Services will be targeted to its Samoan citizens but open to all residents of Hauula regardless of their ethnicity.
Total Amount of Award: $987,317.
Project Period: September 30, 2004, through March 30, 2006.
Sole Source Justification: This unsolicited proposal is responsive to the Senate Appropriations Committee's commitment to the concept of a demonstration project for American Samoans in Hawaii that will integrate social services, to include traditional health, preventive health, prevention and disease management, and address the health disparities among Native Hawaiians and other minority populations by utilizing the expertise of the Waimanalo Health Center. The grant will provide diabetes and related risk factor health screening, as well as relevant health educational and behavioral intervention services, to the geographically isolated, mostly-Samoan community of Hauula on Oahu, but project services will be made available to all Hauula residents regardless of their ethnicity. These services will help improve the administration and effectiveness of programs carried on or assisted under the Social Security Act and programs related thereto.
