Hogan Speaker Session with Dr. Susan Mercado and Rufino Magliba

Our September 7 Wednesday guest speakers are Dr. Susan Mercado, Director, Food Systems and Resiliency for the Hawaii Public Health Institute and Mr. Rufio Magliba, Community Relations for the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement

The Hawai‘i Public Health Institute (HIPHI) is a statewide nonprofit organization that began in 1996, then known as the Coalition for a Tobacco-Free Hawai‘i. In 2012, the organization moved from a singular focus on tobacco issues to a broader public health mission and became the first and only public health institute serving Hawai‘i. Our work has broadened to include: food and agriculture, transportation and public safety, oral health, healthy eating + active living (HEAL), drug and alcohol prevention, tobacco, COVID-19 response efforts and workforce development.

The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement (CNHA) is a member-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to enhance the cultural, economic, political, and community development of Native Hawaiians. Headquartered in Kapolei, CNHA is a Native Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) certified by the U.S. Treasury department and a HUD-Certified Housing Counseling agency. They provide access to capital, financial education and individualized financial counseling services with a focus on low and moderate-income families. CNHA serves as a National Intermediary, providing grants and loans targeting underserved communities in Hawaiʻi.
