1) Introduction

Aloha! 

Thank you so much for committing your time to this very special program. This program is a very unique program, designed for a college nursing group.  Unlike LbE's standard Project Paradise programs, this program will focus entirely on the differences and similarities in healthcare between Hawaii and Japan. 

There will be an interesting mix of LbE staff for this program ranging from specialized Islanders (those who have experience in healthcare), to regular Islanders, to Japanese nurses working/living in Hawaii! Due to the large mix of staff and differences in tasks/roles/time commitments, please read this information packet carefully.

Mahalo,

Kevin Ching
