Native Hawaiian Student Services (NHSS) hosted the third annual Lāhui Hawaiʻi Research Center (LHRC) Student Conference, held at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa at the IMIN’s Center from Friday, March 29 to Saturday, March 30, 2019.

The conference opened with a great keynote by Dr. Kamanamaikalani Beamer and Dr. David Chang and was moderated by Dr. Kealani Cook followed by four different concurrent sessions and lunch. In the afternoon conference attendees enjoyed a beautiful reception in honor of the late Dr. Isabella “Izzy” Abbots 100th birthday. At the reception an inaugural group of Kānaka ʻŌiwi Scholars were celebrated with a $500 scholarship by Native Hawaiian Student Services and some of our program partners. The second day started with another awesome keynote panel talking about climate change featuring four wāhine scientists, Dr. Rosie Alegado, Dr. Noelani Puniwai, Dr. Kiana Frank and Dr. Oceania Francis moderated by another great wāhine scientist, Dr. Kealoha Fox. Immediately after the keynote was a concurrent session followed by lunch and poster presentations.
